About the Teacher/Welcome Msg

This is my 10th year teaching at Overpark and I LOVE my job. I taught 5th grade for one year and this is my 9th year in 2nd. Trust that I will care for your child, and I will hold their academic AND personal success as my highest priority.

During the year, please feel free to contact me with ANY concerns you may have.

Mrs. Bright



I received a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Mississippi. I am highly qualified and certified to teach History and English in grades 6-12 as well.



I am married to a wonderful handsome man, Chris. We have two children, Mia (16) and Michael (13) and two dogs. Mia attends Center Hill High School, and Michael attends Center Hill Middle. We used to live in Horn Lake, but this year we finally moved to Olive Branch!! I love being sooo close:) 

In my RARE free time, I enjoy reading, binge watching Netflix, and spending time with my family.

Wish List

Sight Words

Sight words are words that your child must know fluently "by sight", because they do not "sound out". The 2nd grade list of 300 can be found here. Although the list says 2012-2013, they are the same year after year!
