Count Down from Ms. Bedford to Mrs. Williams - 85 Days!! (December 21, 2020)


Greetings and welcome to "Bedford's Bayou".  My parents placed the name Gina Lynn Bedford on my birth certificate, but I have been affectionately renamed over the years by my students as Ms. B or Mama B.

I have spent the last 17 years teaching in JoCo, and I am terribly excited to be say I am an  Archer Lodge Gator.  I spend 15 years teaching seventh grade at Selma Middle School, and I spent my first two years at The Lodge working with the eighth grade team.  I am beyond excited to be returning to my true love which is working with seventh graders.  I am really looking forward to being back where my heart truly belongs.
