Mrs. Mandy McIntosh
I absolutely love my job because I feel it is a calling. I love my students and desire to teach them more than just reading and writing; I hope to teach life lessons these precious students will carry in their hearts for many years. I taught 8th grade for 5 years in Texas, and I have taught 7th grade here in Trussville since 2008. I was honored with receiving Trussville City Schools Secondary Teacher of the Year in 2010. I have also have 8 years of experience with exceptional education and gifted education.
I have lived in Texas most of my life. As they say, "You can take the girl out of Texas, but you can't take Texas out of the girl!" YEE-EHAW!!! I grew up as a child of two Aggies--graduates of Texas A & M University, so I bleed maroon. I graduated from Galena Park High School in Texas in 1998, and then I attended Texas Wesleyan University from 1998-2002. While in school, I played volleyball and basketball because I am extremely competitive and love sports. I graduated from TWU in 2002 and began teaching at Brooks Wester Middle School as an 8th grade English teacher. The following year I began coaching both volleyball and basketball. In 2004, I married a wonderful man and we had our son in 2008. During that year, we felt called to move to Alabama and have been here since then. I began working at Trussville Middle School in the fall of 2008 and have LOVED every minute. It is a wonderful place to work, and I love my job. My husband and I had another child, a little girl, in 2012. In my spare time, I love to play sports, fish, read, visit family and watch football. I love the Aggies, but I also am an Auburn fan. Gig'em and WAR EAGLE!
I use Google Classroom for all announcements, assignments and important information. Students will receive the code during the first week of school.
I also use the Remind app for homework and testing reminders throughout the year. Please make sure to sign up for this. I suggest that both parents and students should sign up when possible.
Remind101: Text Message Reminders
The Remind101 tool is highly recommended. It is utilized often to inform students and parents of important homework, tests, projects, etc. It is 100% private – I will not be able to see your phone number, and you will not see mine!
