• Welcome to 5th grade Math! My name is Tiffany Hoard. I am so excited about this school year! I have been with the district for 9 years. I was a 1st-grade assistant teacher at Pearl Lower and starting my first year as a teacher at Pearl Upper. I graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi with my bachelor's in Elementary Education in May, and I am working on my master's in Curriculum and Instruction. My husband and I have been married for 3 yrs. If you need anything, please let me know!
