April Ketchum
My name is April Ketchum.  I have lived in Yazoo County my entire life. I have two beautiful daughters who attend Manchester Academy.  Makenzie is 15 and Aubree is 7. They are the light of my life!  They take up most of my free time. On the rare occasion that I do find myself with any spare time, I love to read, shop, cook, and spend time with our animals.  I also serve as one of the nursery coordinators at my church, Tinsley Baptist Church. This is currently my 7th year to teach here at Linwood Elementary, and I look forward to working with your children! Let's have a fantastic 2019-2020 school year! We are "True Blue!"
