• Teaching is the greatest act of optimism.

    Welcome to Yazoo County Middle School.  I am Ms. Debbie Strong, and I am a native of Benton, Mississippi. It has been a pleasure to serve the students of Yazoo County School District in the department of Special Education for over 17 years.  My philosophy of education is that all children are unique and have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. It is my desire to create this type of atmosphere where students can meet their full potential.

    We are looking forward to a great school year. I am eager to work with you and your child and look forward to our collaboration. Please feel free to email me to discuss any questions or concerns.

    Yours Truly, 

    Debbie Strong
