Hello, my name is Taquela Garner. I am excited to be a part of such a great school district as I will teach 7th Grade Science this year. This is my fourth year to teach in the Hinds County School District. I previously taught in the Jackson Public School District and Canton Public Schools. In 2011, I graduated from Mississippi College with a Master’s degree in Teaching. I have a passion for both science and teaching, and I am so excited about working with each and every student this year as we grow and learn together.
Grades will be updated in STI by the end of every Tuesday. Please be sure to look at your student's average in STI and NOT Canvas. Canvas will show the correct grade for an individual assignment, but does not carry the correct weights for each nine weeks. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
9 Weeks Exams=25%
