Mr. Jim Switcher

Hello!  Let me first say how honored I am to be a part of Washington Middle School.  The safety and education of all my students is my number one priority.  If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me.

A real quick "About me".  I have been involved in education since 2005.  I am originally from Corinth, Mississippi.  I taught in MS for five years.  I also spent several years working as a basketball and softball official.  I have taught 6-8 mathematics in MS, TN, KY and IL.  I have also coached either football or basketball every year since 2005.  I also own my own small construction company (Built Better Construction) during the summer months and weekends during school months.  I am married (9 years).  I have two children (24 and 30 yrs old), three step children (19, 21, 24 yrs old) and a granddaughter (5 yrs old).
I will be teaching 5th and 6th grade math here at Washington Middle School.  I have taught 8th grade math for 9 years, 7th grade math for 5 years, and 6th grade math for 6 years.  Fifth grade math is going to be another exciting adventure and I look forward to all the challenges and successes it will bring!
