Subjects Taught
2nd Grade


I have a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education from Jacksonville State University and a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education from The University of Alabama at Birmingham. Over the past 16 years I have taught pre-school, kindergarten, first grade, and second grade. This will be my 8th year teaching second grade at MES.

I have been married 12 years to my husband, Jeremy Adams. We have two children, Anna Beth and Sam. Anna Beth is in fourth grade, and Sam will be four in September. I spend a lot of time with my family playing outside, swimming, watching Anna Beth play softball, and going to church. I teach children's church and serve on the children's council at our church. When I have time on my own, I love to read and bake.

My wish for my children is that they love learning as much as I do. I want them to get excited about science, math, and reading! I want them to spend their free time reading because they've discovered how magnificent a good book can be. I admire the curiosity and wonder of children. I hope to inspire them and encourage them to always want to learn more and to dream big.

A few of my favorite things:

Books- Charlotte's Web, The Giver, To Kill a Mockingbird, Gone With The Wind, anything by James Patterson
