Mrs. Jami Mills
Literacy and Social Studies Teacher
Hello! I am Jami Mills and this is my first year to teach at Cahaba. I’m so excited to be teaching 5th grade Literacy and Social Studies! I grew up in the Great Lakes State of MI but graduated with an Elementary Education degree from Southeastern University in sunny Lakeland, FL. I married a Florida boy 23 years ago! We moved to Birmingham to be youth pastors at Life Church Birmingham from 1995-2000. During that stay, I taught at Springville Elementary and loved teaching! Reluctantly, in 2000 we left Birmingham and headed back to Florida. There my husband pursued his master’s degree and we also continued working in youth ministry. In the fall of 2008 we were excited to move back to Birmingham to pastor Life Church. I have enjoyed the past 5 years serving as Life Church’s Assimilation Director. I worked with all different ages and nationalities, coordinating small groups and ministry teams, but felt compelled to get back to my love of teaching!
My family and I are Trussville residents…go Huskies! My son is a 2018 graduate from HTHS and will be attending UAB this fall. I have another son who is a sophomore and a daughter starting her freshman year at HTHS. We love Trussville schools and our Trussville community!
This year my goal is to instill a love and confidence in reading for our 5th graders at Cahaba! I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
