Ms. Halima Welch

My name is Halima Welch, and I am a special education teacher here at North Bay Elementary. It is my first year here but I previously taught at Nichols Elementary in Biloxi, where I was selected Teacher of the Year for 2020-2021 school year.  It is my 11th year teaching, all of which have been in special education. I am passionate about children's education, and I feel like every student can learn and progress in their daily life and apply it to everyday situations. I love to see children build their confidence and become more independent and smarter every day. I am looking forward to this school year. In my class, we learn many things while increasing our independence, confidence, social skills, academics, communication skills, and many other areas. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, listening to music, and watching movies. I also have one son, who brings me a lot of joy, smiles, and love. I love the saying, live, love, laugh because life is a learning process that can get better each day through positivity and patience.
