Mrs. Veronica Breakfield

I am a Mississippi native, but have lived in Alabama for the past 25 years.  I still pull for the Mississippi State Bulldogs.  I am a huge sports fan and love to attend sporting events of all kinds at MSU.  I have been an educator for the past 25 years.    I have been teaching at Athens Elementary for the past 20 years at AES. I have a passion for teaching and I firmly believe it is a calling. 

I am a 1991 graduate of William Carey University in Hattiesburg, MS where I recieved my Bachelor of Education.  I completed the Masters of Education program at The University of West Alabama in 2017. 

I am married to Eddie Breakfield and we have two wonderful children. My son Morgan is married to Dagan, and my daughter Mary Claire is married to Nathan.  I have a precious granddaughter, Mary Ryan who has brought unbelievable joy to our family!
