About the Teacher
Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Mr. Tuggle. I have been teaching at Moody Elementary School for 23 years. In addition to teaching, I am the director of the EdSTREAM program. Believe me, working with children is the best opportunity on earth. It gives me great pleasure to come to school every day and see my students grow, learn, mature, and blossom into great individuals.
I have lived in Moody my whole life. As a matter of fact, I attended Moody schools from kindergarten to graduation. I went to college at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Several years ago, UAB named me an Outstanding Alum for my contributions in the field of teaching.
During my tenure as a teacher, I have been extremely fortunate to have been named St. Clair County Teacher of the Year two times. I have also been awarded the title of Birmingham News/Post Herald Distinguished Teacher of the Year.
My goals include: providing children with the best teaching and learning experience; seeing that every child can perform reading and math skills at grade level or above; providing children with a warm, secure environment in which to learn; and providing a classroom environment that fosters creativity and a joy for learning.
If you need me for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact me. You are very important to me.
