• Welcome to First Grade!



    My name is Mrs. Tomeka Byest and I am honored to be your child's first grade teacher this year! This is my 14th year in education and I am super excited about our school year together! I received my Bachelor's Degree from Jackson State University in Elementary Education with a Concentration in Reading.

    My assistant is Mrs. Tabitha Parker and we're both looking forward to a WONDERFUL year full of learning, laughter and making precious memories.


    If you have any questions or concerns, I can be reached best by email. My email address is tbyest@pearlk12.com. 

    I welcome your thoughts and feedback. I believe if we all work together, we can make this an AWESOME year for our students and help them achieve the goals set for them. 



    We're  about learning this school year!!!
