Hello, my name is Hope Durst, and it is a joy to return to Annunciation Catholic School as an educator and parent. I am a product of Annunciation Catholic School (1991-1997), and I credit this incredible school with giving me a solid foundation to become a life-long learner. I am originally from Columbus, and I am a member of Annunciation Catholic Church. I attended Mississippi State University where I received a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in English and Social Studies, a master’s degree in Curriculum & Instruction, and a doctoral degree. I previously taught in public education as a middle school English Language Arts teacher as well as worked at MSU in higher education.
I look forward to getting to know each child and carrying out our school’s mission of building character, fostering community, and developing the skills and interests in each student so that they may become life-long learners.
