Mrs. Misti D. Segura
Hello! This is my twelfth year in Education, and my eighth year teaching English Language Arts to junior high students. My family and I are new to Biloxi. We moved from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, home to my beloved Louisiana State University. Geaux Tigers! I earned a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and graduated from the Peabody College of Education with Summa Claude Laude honors. A year later, I earned my Master of Education graduate degree with a concentration in Reading Strategies, Curriculum and Instruction. In 2012, I received a National Board Certification in English Language Arts for the instruction of early adolescents. Just under three percent of the nation's teachers hold this distinction, so forgive my bragging - I am very proud of this achievement!
We are an Air Force family. I married my college sweetheart, Chad, and we have three brilliant children: Abigail, Emily and Spencer. We are also blessed with four dogs and a cat.
I spend my free time engaging in the local arts, attending festivals, and traveling abroad whenever I can. I am actively involved in several creative writing communities here in Mississippi and on the national level. If I’m not in my classroom, you can usually find me hiding in a bookstore with a cup of coffee. I absolutely love a good story!
