Bio

 

Ms. Anna York is originally from a very small town in western New York State. She grew up with seven siblings, of which she is the second born. She was home-schooled until the 10th grade, where she entered the local public school and became involved in the National Honor Society, band, chorus, drama, assisting coaches, and finally graduated as co-salutatorian of her senior class. Her favorite subject is school has always been math.

From a very early age, Ms. York wanted to become a teacher, although she always thought she would teach elementary-aged children. She attended Lee University for a teaching license in "elementary education." However, since the degree officially stated "K-8", she was forced to fulfill a student-teaching placement in a middle school. Within the first week of her middle school placement, Ms. York "fell in love" with the middle-school mind and decided that her dream job would be to teach middle-school math. A month after graduating with her teaching license, Murray County Schools noticed her application for a middle school math position and upon their offer, Ms. York gladly accepted the job as the "7A - Math" teacher at Bagley Middle School. She has learned that Bagley Middle School is truly a "Special Place for Special People" and could not ask for a better place to come to every day.
