All About Me


My name is Betsy Bess and I am so excited to be the English Learners teacher at PHES and DCES this year.  This is my 3oth year with DeSoto County schools.  I have 2 children, ages 12 and 6.  Both of my children attend Pleasant Hill. 

I have a Bachelor's and Master's degree from the University of Mississippi, as well as other areas of endorsement.  I currently serve as the North Area Director for the Mississippi Literacy Association.

Check out Duolingo!  Lots of games and learning fun!
