Ms. Gina L. Bedford

Greetings and welcome to "Bedford'd 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 graduated from what was at that time Mount Olive College with an Associate of Arts degree and from East Carolina University with a Bachelors of Science degree in Seconday English Education.  After one year of working with high school, I decided that middle school was where I wanted to be.  I have been teaching for 26 years with my time split between Wayne County and Johnston County schools.

I have spent the last 15 years teaching at Selma Middle School, but I am terribly excited to be teaching at Archer Lodge Middle School this year.  After 15 years in seventh grade, he seems awfully good to be promoted to eighth grade.

I look forward to working with you over the course of the next year.  


Please be sure to add my remind info:  Text 81010 @GinaBed
