    Hello all! I am Miss Wiggins, and I teach second grade at Mt. Carmel Elementary. I moved to McDonough in June of 2019 from Warner Robins in Houston county. I am a military brat and sister to three other siblings, and I have an adorable dog named Kobie. I have traveled and lived in many cities along the southeast, but I call Tampa, Florida my home. This is my third year teaching; I have a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Special Education. This is my first year at Mt. Carmel Elementary, and I'm super excited to join the Mustang family!
