Jaguar Journal is your student produced monthly guide to what's happening at GIVE Center East.

New Teacher Spotlight


Mrs. Bell initially never thought that she would become a teacher, she wanted a job in a different field but she started subbing and realized that she liked it. The best part of Mrs. Bell’s job is to teach children they can take and use in real life. She has worked at Shiloh High School, Marrow High School, Oxford High School, Clarksdale High School, and Monroe Elementary. Some of the challenges that Mrs.Bell thinks youth face today are being able to deal with peer pressure, social media, types of abuse, and keeping up with work. In her free time Mrs. Bell enjoys playing football and kick ball.


Mrs. Bell teaches language arts and says she likes the atmosphere and respects the vision of GIVE Center East.
