I am DeWayne Profit, and I am the Computer Lab, Physical Education, & Health  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 Bachelor's degree in Business Administration, and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Mississippi State University (Hail State). This is my seventh year of teaching, and my third year at Linwood Elementary. I am proud to be a part of the Linwood family once again and can't wait to do what I love. I enjoy working with kids.
