Dr. Anjell Edwards
My name is Dr. Anjell Harris Edwards. I am a veteran educator with more than 20 years of combined classroom and administrative experience. I completed my undergraduate studies at The University of Alabama. I earned my Master of Science degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from Samford University. After working as a teacher for several years, I obtained an Educational Specialist degree in Teacher Leadership from The University of Montevallo. While completing that degree, I completed the requirements for the add-on certification in administration. I have worked as an elementary, middle and high school administrator. In the summer of 2014, I completed the requirements for my doctorate in Educational Leadership at Samford University. I have a strong interest in literacy across content areas. My dissertation topic was: Literacy Coaching: Middle School Academic Achievement and Teacher Perceptions Regarding Content Area Literacy Strategy Instruction. In the spring of 2015, I published and excerpt of my dissertation in the AAPEL Journal. Dr. Pattie Neill co-authored and Dr. Phyllis Faust served as the editor for that article. I have served as a peer editor for Voices from the Middle, a national publication of the National Council for Teachers of English (NCTE). I also periodically serve as a committee member on dissertation committees for those seeking doctoral degrees. I am happy to serve the parents, students and faculty of HTMS! Go Huskies!
