3rd Grade - Mrs. Williams
I’m Vanessa Williams, a graduate of Northwestern State University, and I
can’t believe I’m beginning my thirtieth year! I will be teaching third grade (the best grade ever). Verda Elementary has been my second home for 22 years, and I consider myself blessed to work here. I have taught grades 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 6th, and even ventured out and taught P.E., but I will always be a third grade teacher at heart. Out of my 29 years teaching, I have taught third grade for 22.
My husband, Brian Williams, is the head football coach and athletic director at Montgomery High School. My son, Taylor Williams, a former Yellow Jacket, is the P.E. teacher here at VES and is the assistant football coach and head boys’ basketball coach at MHS. My daughter, Morgan Settle, also a former Yellow Jacket, is currently working on her Master’s Degree in school counseling and working on her internship at MHS.
We, as a family, love sports and working in the Grant Parish school system. Even though this upcoming school year will be a lot different than my past years, I’m still just as excited to meet my new third grade babies. If we all work together, this year can still be wonderful!
