Subjects Taught
4th Grade


I received my bachelor's degree in elementary education from Jackson State University on April 23, 2016. 


I started my career as an educator here at BGS and have been here for 3 years.


My name is Carey Kirkland. I was raised in Yazoo City, MS so this area feels more like home to me than where I work. I graduated from Yazoo City High School in 2011 and went on to further my studies at Jackson State University. I became a member of the Sonic Boom of the South Marching Band in which I played the trombone and later obtained a leadership role as a drum major in the band. During my time I saw how much of an impact a positive male presence had on children in the communtiy. This is what ultimately influenced my decision to become an educator. I graduated April 23, 2016 with a B.S. in elementary education K-3 and have been employed here at BGS since August of the same year. My time here has been a fulfilling and given me a ample opportuntiy to grow as an educator.
