Dr. Michelle Bivens, Superintendent, Pontotoc City School District

“Professional learning is an important part of being a thriving school and district. We carefully select our professional development providers based on many factors including expertise of providers and a track record of success. Most importantly, we select organizations that will partner with us to improve outcomes for our students and staff. Bailey Education does fit all those criteria. They work with our administrators and staff to improve leadership at the district, school, and classroom levels. They are responsive to our needs and provide training and tools that fit our mission and district goals. The partnership with Bailey has benefited Pontotoc City School District in many ways, the greatest of which is the resource they are when we begin a new initiative. We know they are never more than a phone call or email away when we have questions or need assistance. They have worked tirelessly to earn and maintain our trust and continue to help us grow as individual educators and as a district.  Of the many professional development companies available, Bailey Education is our most frequent choice. With Bailey, we are not just getting presenters or professional development, but a group of experienced professional educators who put the needs of our staff and students ahead of anything else. We never feel like we are customers. They have worked diligently to build a solid relationship with Pontotoc City School District that feels like a partnership in our growth and success.”
