My name is Michael Manning. I have been teaching since 1991. This is the beginning of my 4th year at Kountze. I have been married to my wife Christy, who also teaches at Kountze, for 28 years. We have three children whose names are Brittney, Michael and Dakota. We have one beautiful granddaughter, with a grandson on the way. I have really enjoyed the past three years and we are considering selling our home in Crockett and buying a home here. It has been very rewarding and want to thank the Kountze community for making me feel at home.
