About the Teacher/Welcome Msg
Welcome to Mrs. Tinker's 3rd Grade!
Let's make this year an Adventure in Learning!!
My years of experience make me want to be a better teacher each new year.
National Board Certified 26 years
Taught First through Eighth Grades
This is my eighth year in the DeSoto County School System, and my sixth year at Overpark Elementary. However, this is my twenty-sixth year of teaching. I have taught First Grade through Eighth Grade. I taught first grade for thirteen years before moving to DeSoto County. In DeSoto County I taught second grade before moving to third grade for two years.
I have a Masters in Elementary Education from the University of West Alabama, and I received my B.S. from the University of Alabama. Four years ago I earned recognition as a National Board Certified teacher.
My wonderful family includes my husband, six daughters, three son-in-laws, and six fantastic grandchildren! I love football and coming from Alabama, I have to say Roll Tide!!
