About the Teacher
Degrees and Certifications:
Hi, my name is Mrs. Bailey! I started teaching here at Moody Elementary School in 2000. I moved to Moody in 1996 when my oldest daughter was just beginning kindergarten. She is now 31, a nurse, and she and her husband had their first baby Oct. 2021. My middle daughter is 30 years old, lives in Atlanta, and is a graduate of UAB in Public Relations. My youngest daughter is 24 and pursuing a nursing degree, and mother to my older grandson. Being a grandmother has been the most fun this summer!
I have always enjoyed teaching and, in fact, used to make my younger brother play school with me when we were children. Now it is such a joy to see the progression of learning in all my students each year. Fostering the development of critical thinking skills is an area I focus on in my classroom so that my students become problem-solvers. I have always LOVED to read (the best part about summer!) and therefore, I encourage a love of reading in every student in order to promote life-long learning. It is my goal that each student reaches their potential, both academically and socially, and feels safe, secure, and loved during their year spent with me in my classroom.
A few of my favorite things are:
Favorite Colors: Soft colors: blue, pink, cream, white
Favorite Restaurants: Cheesecake Factory, Jim & Nick's BBQ, Chick-fil-A
Favorite Snacks: Peanut M&Ms, any type of "good" chocolate
Favorite Drinks: Mochas or lattes from Starbucks, McDonald's, etc.
