My name is Rise Edwards, and I have been an elementary teacher for the Biloxi School District for 22 years. I am originally from Stone County. I graduated from Stone High School and went on to receive degrees from MS Gulf Coast Community College and the University of Southern MS. I am married and have three daughters that keep me very busy outside of school. Having a daughter with special needs has inspired me to do my best to teach students how to be compassionate towards others.
