My name is Martha Shirley. I am a Pearl High School graduate, having completed all 12 years of school in the Pearl Public School District. I received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education degree from Mississippi College and have been teaching Kindergarten at Pearl Lower Elementary for 15 years. My husband, John, and I have two children, three grandchildren, and one cat. I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren, gardening, listening to Christian music, reading, traveling, and collecting crosses, frogs, and peacocks.
