Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Drena Gibbs

I am Drena Gibbs, and I have been teaching for over 23 years. I have earned a degree from Saint Augustine's College as well as from NCSU. I have worked primarily with students in small group settings. I am very passionate about teaching. I love working with students and strive to make their days with me as memorable. I believe in all students and want each of them to know that they have a cheerleader in me.


Why I like working with kids...

I love to see them light up when they figure out a problem or come up with a new solution. I enjoy watching them grow from the beginning of the school year to the end. It is PRICELESS!


What I want the community, parents and students to know about my class...

I want everyone to know that our class is a family. We work together to better everyone in the family. I love the CARES program at MECME because it focuses on the whole child. It teaches the students that they are a community, and we work together.
