Principal's Message from Mrs. Milony Jenkins
Greetings from Byhalia Elementary School….Where there is Brilliance in Every Student!! At BES, we celebrate the individuality of all students. We strive to challenge every student through rigorous, quality, creative instruction, and reflective practices. It is our duty to provide a safe, supportive, and positive learning environment for all students. It is our mission to meet each child where they are, in order to build a solid academic foundation and help foster the development of model citizens, eventually preparing them for success in the global community.

Mrs. Milony Jenkins,

Teacher of the Year
Teacher of the Year
Ms. Bradley was named the 2018-2019 Teacher of the Year for Byhalia Elementary School! Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, Ms. Bradley studied elementary education before joining Teach For America where she was placed at Byhalia Elementary School. Ms. Bradley says she is very lucky to teach at Byhalia Elementary school because the staff are so supportive and the students work so hard! She also appreciates those parents who go out of their way to support her in the classroom as well. In her free time, Ms. Bradley enjoys playing the violin with the Germantown Symphony Orchestra, watching Netflix, and drinking coffee at Starbucks. Last year, Ms. Bradley (along with two others teachers) began a music club where they teach students how to play instruments for free after school. Ms. Bradley says it's been a humbling experience working with such amazing students! We are so proud to have such a wonderful teacher at our school! Congrats Ms. Bradley!

Our librarian, Ms. Bullard, enjoys reading and loves to share that joy with students. Ms. Bullard loves dressing up to show students that reading is really fun! Using the famous song "Call Me Maybe," she has created a fun persona surrounding how wonderful reading is!
