I am DeWayne Profit Sr., and I am the Health/Physical Education teacher at Linwood Elementary. I am a native of Clarksdale, MS where I also attended Clarksdale High School (Go Wildcats). I am an alumnus of Mississippi Valley State University(Go Devils) with a Bachelors degree in Business Administration, and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Mississippi State University (Hail State). This will be my fifth year of teaching, but my first year at Linwood Elementary. I am proud to be a part of the Linwood family and can't wait to do what I love. Health and Physical Education is my passion and I enjoy working with kids. I am married with two children, a boy and a girl and they are my world. I am excited about the new year and ready to jump in full steam ahead.
