About the Teacher/Welcome Msg
I am a graduate of Horn Lake High School. Continuing my education, I received a B.S. in Elementary Education from The University of Montevallo in Alabama. In 2006 I earned a M.S. in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Mississippi. I am certified to teach gifted students.
I had many wonderful experiences before coming to DeSoto County Schools as a teacher. Mostly I worked in pre-schools, various children's programs and PTAs. I truly feel teaching is my life's work. For twelve years I taught first grade at Olive Branch Elementary. I have been fortunate to teach gifted students at OBIS, Chickasaw and Lewisburg since 2012.
My name is Jo Faucher. ( pronounced fo-sha with long vowels! ) I am married to Gerald Faucher. Together our blended family consists of six children and eight grandchildren We have 2 dogs, a cat and a number of fish. I grew up in Horn Lake with my three brothers. I enjoy travel, love the beach, crafting and playing with our grandchildren.
