Bachelor's Degree Early Childhood Education--Samford University, 1992
After graduating from Samford University in 1992, I took a third grade teaching position at Hewitt Elementary School, and I have never left!!!!
This is my 28th year of teaching third grade in Trussville. There is no place I would rather spend my time!
I believe children are such a joy to watch! It is a wonderful sight to see them grow mentally, physically, and socially in the third grade. They are energy filled eight and nine year olds, eager to uncover new ideas and information. I count it an honor to watch my students work collaboratively to discover new information and grow as learners on a daily basis.
I have been married to my husband, Marty, for 24 years. He is a high school teacher and basketball coach. We have two children, a daughter, Beth Allen, who is a senior at UAB, and a son, Micah, who is starting his freshman year at Martin Methodist College in Tennessee, where he will run cross country and track. They are both graduates of HTHS. We also have a prissy black cat named Jacket! I enjoy visiting the beach, listening to music, watching my children participate in their sports and other activities, watching basketball, being involved in my church, CrossPoint, and learning new ways to help children learn.
Mrs. Patterson is my team teacher. She teaches Language Arts and Social Studies. We are looking forward to a GREAT year!
