A New Face at AHS  

by Ashlyn Black  The Prowl News

Although COVID-19 affected many of our activities, it has not hindered us from having a student teacher here at Amory High School.  Bailey Gillentine is interning here at AHS from Mississippi State University.  When picking which school she would want to intern at, Ms. Gillentine did not hesitate to have Amory as her top pick; “I got to pick my top three schools and Amory was my number one.”  Gillentine says her favorite part of AHS is how much it differs from surrounding schools.  “I like the way they do things here, and I also like the virtual aspect of it.”  Needless to say, Bailey Gillentine has always been eager to pursue a career in education.  When I asked Ms. Gillentine if teaching was what she wanted to do, she responded, “Yes! I’ve never thought I wanted to do anything else.  Always! Always!” While here at Amory High School, Ms. Gillentine shadows Mrs. Miller and also takes the lead while recording the lessons to be able to send it to her professor for a grade.  Mrs. Miller also grades her on her teaching capabilities and how she is in a classroom setting.  All in all, I am sure that English 3 and AHS as a whole is glad to have such an energetic and vibrant addition to the school for this period of time.
