Hello! My name is Anessa Mize and I am very excited to be teaching 4th grade at Youngs Grove Elementary. This is my 4th year teaching at Youngs Grove. We will be having a lot of fun learning in 4th grade this year. The next few months are sure to be busy as we explore and grow together.
I am a native of Marietta, GA but have lived in Polk County for the past sixteen years. My husband and I have 2 children (a son going into 10th grade and a daughter going into 8th grade), 3 dogs (a black lab named Jasmine and two Dalmatians named Petey and Emerson) and feisty cat named Precious. I worked for Polk School District for the last five years before deciding to pursue my dream of becoming a teacher.
I think you are really going to enjoy this year. We will be learning many new things and you will be making many new friends. Please talk to me if you have something to share, if you don’t understand something, or if you are ever upset. I think you’ll find I’m a good listener.
