About the Teacher

My name is Lela Hester.  This is my 21st  year of teaching.  I am originally from Carthage, MS.  I received my Bachelor and Masters Degrees from Mississippi State University.  I became a National Board Certified Teacher in 2002.  My husband,  Robert, and I  have two wonderful  children, Carter (8), who is a fourth grader at Madison Crossing and Mary Ella (6), who is in first grade at MCE this year.  I love spending time with my family and friends.  I love college football and tailgating at Mississippi State games!
