Greets Parents and Students,

My name is Chiquita Gaylor and I will be the classroom facilitator for Physical Science at Ferriday High School for the 2017-2018 school term. I am an eleven year veteran teacher and I have taught in Mississippi and Louisiana school districts. I have also taught various other science disciplines. I am excited to have the opportunity to service your students and the Ferriday High School Trojan community this year. Let's Make It Great Together.
