Unleashing A World of Possibilities for Students

In the adjacent video, you’ll meet TaNaya Bluitt, a 5th grade teacher at Overstreet Elementary in Starkville. She’s passionate about her career and the role she plays in helping young people learn, grow and reach their fullest potential as students and responsible citizens.

This video marks the launch of our Unleash Possible campaign to raise awareness about the state’s teacher shortage and encourage more Mississippians to pursue careers in education. TaNaya is living proof that teachers make a difference in creating a brighter and more promising future for Mississippi. But unless we recruit and hire more teachers in our schools in coming years, our entire state will be faced with a serious crisis.

We believe a crisis is avoidable. As Mississippi’s leading advocate for quality public education, MASS seeks to do more than talk about the teacher shortage and other challenges facing our public schools — we’re working proactively with state leaders to develop solutions that will move our public education system forward.

One way is by showcasing educators across Mississippi who want to share their excitement and enthusiasm for teaching. Hearing them describe the love for what they do in their own words is inspiring, and as the Unleash Possible campaign spreads statewide, we believe their personal stories will inspire more Mississippians to consider careers in education.
