Meridian – Meridian High School teacher Lorie Anderson began her 20th year teaching in MPSD by learning that she had been named to the Mississippi Teacher Council (MTC).

Anderson will serve on the council which consists of nearly 200 experienced and highly regarded educators from across the state. The MTC, formed in 2016, now has 381 educators representing schools across the state.

“I am honored to be chosen and to be able to represent MPSD at a state level,” said Anderson. “I am excited to see how the Mississippi Teacher Council will be able to help classrooms across Mississippi be successful.”

The purpose of the MTC is to provide feedback to Dr. Carey Wright, state superintendent of education, on the initiatives of the Mississippi Department of Education, The Mississippi State Board of Education and the Mississippi State Legislature.

“The MTC will provide a venue for teachers to become advocates for their students and their profession through input into the decision-making process,” Wright said.
