Meet your librarian!

Jada Deal I am very excited to be your librarian at Mendenhall Jr High School this year. I am native of Simpson County. I obtained an Associates Degree from Hinds Community College, a Bachelors degree from William Carey University, and a Masters of Education in Elementary Education from William Carey University. I am also certified in STEM, Exploring Computer Science, and Library Media Specialist. I am beginning my twenty-fourth year in education. I taught for twenty-three years in the Simpson County District. During my tenure I taught twenty-one years at Magee Middle School, one year at Magee High School, and one year as librarian at Mendenhall Jr. High and Magee High School. I am very excited to be your school librarian and to serve the students and teachers at Mendenhall Jr. High School and Magee High School. I look forward to seeing you in the Library.


It is the goal of the library media center to assist the school’s mission in fostering and educating a community of lifelong learners, to help students become critical thinkers, skillful researchers, and responsible users of ideas and information, and to also inspire an enjoyment of reading.
