Subjects Taught
1st Grade




I am so excited to be part of the 1st grade team at PHES! Most importantly, I am thrilled to be your child’s teacher. I want to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself.


My name is Carla Belk. I was raised in Southaven, MS. I attended Southaven High School where I met my husband of 32 years. After having our three wonderful children, Katherine, Kandace, and Keaton, I decided to go back to school and get my education degree. It was one of the best decisions of my life. I graduated from Ole Miss in 1999 and after working for 5 years at DeSoto Central Elementary, I started teaching at PHES in 2003. My family moved to Madison, MS in 2010 where I taught for 5 years. I am so excited to be back at the school I call home, Pleasant Hill Elementary. This is my 21st year to teach and I truly believe I have the best job, at the best school, with the best students!


It is going to be a great year full of new friends, new adventures, and new discoveries. I look forward to meeting and working with you and your child this year. By working together, we can ensure that your child will be a ‘lifelong learner’! I welcome your input and look forward to a great year!


Thank you,

Carla Belk
