Deanna Cole

1st Grade



I am so excited to spend this year with your child! Mrs. Swinford and I love our students and build such a strong bond with them throughout the year. I am excited to see the growth that they show each month! Thank you to all parents for your support in order for all students to have a successful year. 

 I am a 2008 graduate from the University of Mississippi. I am a certified teacher in grades K-12 with endorsements in English, History, and Physical Education. This is my 14th year teaching. I am so blessed to have amazing students and such a fun job!  My husband and I have been married for 16 years and our 2 boys also attend Desoto county schools.

Mrs. Swinford is our assistant. We have worked together for 13 years. She loves to work with the students and they build such a wonderful relationship with each other throughout the year. They call her Mrs.Swiny!
