Ms. Mary Lynn Makamson

Hey y’all!!! My name is Mary Lynn Makamson, and I teach Special Education at Back Bay Elementary. This is my first year teaching at Back Bay, and it is my 13th year teaching. I received my Bachelor’s from the University of Southern Mississippi in English:Literature in 2009.I then received my Masters from William Carey University in English Education in 2011 and got endorsed in Special Education.I got engaged over Christmas 2022 and will be getting married soon. I am a Dog Mom to Bria Bonita. She turns five in October. I enjoy spending my free time with Bria Bonita, cooking new meals, and planting in my yard (Plants make me happy!). I grew up in a family of teachers in Pascagoula, MS. My mom was a high school English teacher for over 30 years, and my dad was an art teacher for over 30 years. I grew up in the classroom, and I always dreamed of being a teacher. After having taught 12 years, I love meeting my new students each year. I am so excited for the 23/24 school year at Back Bay!!
