Mrs. Ryann Hawkins

Hello!  My name is Mrs. Hawkins and I am a CREATE teacher at Biloxi Upper Elementary.  This will be my 15th year as an educator and 8th year in Gifted Education.  I started my educational career off as an Art Teacher in Rankin County, MS at McLaurin Elementary School. After marrying my wonderful husband, I moved to Starkville, MS, where I taught Art for one year, then became a gifted teacher at HWS for six fantastic years.  Last year was my first year at BUE and I LOVED every minute of it and enjoyed seeing all the wonders we CREATED along the way.  I am very excited about seeing what our CREATE students will ACHIEVE this year! 

We are going to ACHIEVE. LEAD. EXCEL.
