Computer Skills & Applications within Business Education
Mr. Mitchell or Coach Mitchell
Welcome to my webpage. This is my 8th year at Southern Middle School and my 16th year teaching overall. It is exciting to see students progress throughout the year and I ALWAYS encourage parent involvement. Each grade level has specific concentrations that will be covered during class. Select the grade level for the files and activities for those classes.
Outside of teaching in the classroom, I am the Athletic Director, Head Football and Track & Field Coach. I have a big family who I enjoy spending time with. I love food and candy.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me please.
