Ms. Tashekia Atkins is a native of Hollandale. She recently graduated from Jackson State Univiersity and is currently enrolled in a pyschometry program there.

Last year, Ms. Atkins worked part-time at Sanders with the 3rd and 6th graders and spent the other half of the day teaching family and consumer science at Simmons Jr/Sr High School. This year, she joins Sanders full-time as a special education teacher.

“I want to give back to my community,” she says. “Not many people come back. I want to come back and help make my community a better place.”

Ms. Alicia Watson is a native of Greenville, MS. She recently graduated from Delta State University and worked with their Child Development Center on campus.

Ms. Watson loves working with young students, including her three year-old son. She is committed to Hollandale and is excited about working in a loving and collegial atmosphere.
