Three JPS teachers added to MDE’s Mississippi Teacher Advisory Council


JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – The Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) announced the addition of 49 professionals from across the state to serve on the Mississippi Teacher Advisory Council (MTAC).

Joining the 2021 class are three educators from the Jackson Public School District (JPS):

  • Vicki Latham of Spann Elementary
