Aleia Bland Staff Photo

I am a product of DeSoto County Schools. I graduated from the University of Mississippi in 2011 with a Bachelor's degree in Paralegal Studies and a minor in History. I have my Masters of Arts in Teaching degree from Mississippi State University.


This is my fifth year to teach in DeSoto County Schools. I taught 5th grade Language Arts at Olive Branch Intermediate my first year teaching.


My name is Aleia Bland, and this is my fifth year to teach fifth grade. I love it so much! I am married to my best friend, Tyler. We have an 18 month old baby girl named Maybree. We also have two dogs, Molly and Boomer, who are like our kids. I love being outdoors and spending time with family and friends.

I want to make your child's year a successful one. I know that we will grow together. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns!
