Hello, my name is Lydia Bourn. I am an Ole Miss graduate with a degree in elementary education (K-8) and additional certification in reading and gifted. I have experience teaching first, fourth, and sixth grades, but ever since being in a gifted program as a child, I have had an interest in teaching gifted children. I finally had the opportunity to do just that eight years ago when I found my home teaching "PAthways" here at Madison Crossing.
I am married to Stefan Bourn, and we have one daughter, Jessica, who is a sophomore at Southern Miss. My nest is not completely empty, however, as I share it with 2 cocker spaniels, a rag doll cat, and a wonderful, former stray cat we lovingly refer to as "Fat Bill."
In my spare time I enjoy international travel, snorkeling, gardening, and reading . Currently I am serving as the Bowl Director for the
Mississippi Affiliate of the Future Problem Solving Program

Thank you for letting me be a part of your child's school experience.
