Principal's Corner

Dr. Jerry Wayne Floate

This is my fourth year at Olive Branch Middle School. Before coming to Olive Branch I served as an assistant principal at Lake Cormorant High School for one year and at Hernando Middle School for six years. Before becoming and administrator, I served as a Special Education teacher and coach at Desoto Central Middle School. I have a bachelor’s degree in Business Education from Delta State University. I also have a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Mississippi. Lastly, I have a specialist's degree in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State University, and a doctorate in Educational Leadership from Liberty University. 

It is my pleasure and honor to be the principal of Olive Branch Middle School. We have a great school and a wonderful community in which we serve. My philosophy on education is that "Every Child Deserves to Grow Every Day." It is our goal to provide every child with the tools and skills they will need to be college and career ready upon graduating from high school. I look forward to the up-coming school year, and encourage parents to email or call us if we can ever be of assistance.
