WELCOME to PE, HEALTH, & COMPUTER for 2021-2022 school year. I am DeWayne Profit SR., and I will be your Teacher, Coach, and Beta Sponsor 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). I recently obtained my Specialist in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State University (Go Wolves). I am married with two children, a boy and a girl and they are my world. This is my ninth year of teaching, and my fifth year at Linwood Elementary. I am a proud member of the Linwood family in which I coach the baby panthers basketball team and sponsor the Linwood Elementary Beta Club who competed Nationally and placed 8th and 9th in Recyclable Art and Painting out of 18 states in Orlando Florida this summer. (Way to go Beta Club Members)We are coming in 2021 ready to get this year rolling as normal. I am hopeful we will continue with our basketball teams and competitions with other schools. As always I am excited to get back to the basics and do what I love, which is teacher and coaching. I enjoy working with kids to help them achieve their goals and give them life long lessons that can help them become better citizens in society.
