Mrs. Maddie Garrett
Hi! My name is Maddie Garrett and I teach 5th grade reading at Paine. This is the eleventh year of my teaching career, ninth year in 5th grade, and seventh year at Paine. I am originally from Dallas, Texas, but moved to Alabama in 2005 after graduating from Gunter High School in Gunter, Texas. I followed in my dad's footsteps and attended the University of Alabama. I spent my last semester abroad in Bognor Regis, England where I taught kindergarten and fourth grade. I graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I earned a Master of Arts in Educational Psychology from the University of Alabama in 2017.
I am married to Coach Jake Garrett who teaches and coaches at HTHS. We live in Trussville and love our community. When we're not at Husky football games, we enjoy watching and attending Alabama football games, spending time with our family and friends, and being at home with our dog, Murphy.
