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.
