Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Belinda Harrell
I grew up in Pearl, and I attended Pearl Schools for both elementary and secondary school. I graduated from Pearl High School in 1997. I attended Delta State University and graduated from there in May 2001 with a Bachelor of Music Education degree. I then taught Middle School/High School Band for 3 years at Madison Middle School and Madison Central High School. I attended Mississippi College in 2004-2005, and graduated in July 2005 with a Master of Elementary Education degree. I began teaching 5th grade at Pearl Upper Elementary in 2005 and remained in that position for 13 years. I'm now in my 3rd year as the Librarian at Pearl Upper. I hope to share my love of books and reading with even more students and to foster a love of reading in PUE students.
My husband, Jason, is one of the band directors at Pearl Junior High/Pearl High School. We have two children, Emma and Austin.
