Mrs. Gabriel Higdon

I am a Springville alumna, and I graduated SHS in 2012. Go Tigers! After graduating, I attended UAB where I majored in biology and minored in psychology. I continued onto graduate school to major in general science secondary education at once again UAB. Go Blazers! 

I am married to my high school sweetheart Lance who teaches math at Leeds High School. We have two fur kids Milo and Remi, and we worship and serve at The Gathering Place Church! I am a lover of all animals, coffee, and anything related to Finding Nemo/Dory. :) 

Science was always my favorite subject in school, and my goal is for all of my students to experience the excitement and wonder that science has to offer! I am looking forward to a great school year!
