Hello! My name is Elizabeth Towle, and I am excited to be serving in my first year as assistant principal of Byhalia Middle School. Although it is my first year in administration, it is not my first year with BMS. Previously, I taught 8th grade English for four years before serving as the school's instructional facilitator for a semester.
I attended college at Harvard University, receiving a B.A. from the Committee on Degrees in Social Studies. Additionally, I earned a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction and a Specialist in Educational Leadership from the University of Mississippi.
I look forward to another great year at Byhalia Middle School. I always enjoy working with our wonderful students, parents, and teachers.
Greetings! My name is Ms. Tina Kimmons. I’ve been working as a Professional School Counselor for almost 10 years. I’ve received my undergraduate degree in Social Work. But, after working with children for 3 years as a Mental Health Therapist, I decided to pursue my Master’s in Counseling in Educational Setting.
I love working with children and believe that every child can succeed regardless of his/her background!
I have a precious little son name Caiden Noel Kimmons. He keeps me busy!
I am here at BMS to serve the children, parents, and our wonderful staff. Please feel free to contact me via telephone (662)838-2591 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org should you need assistance. Go Indians!
