7 years of Teaching Experience


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). 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. Thisis my eighth year of teaching, and my Fourth year at Linwood Elementary. I am proud member of the Linwood family in which I also coach the baby panthers basketball team, and a sponsor for Beta Club. Although this year will be very different, I am always excited to get back to the basics and do what I love. 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.
