About the Teacher
Degrees and Certifications:
Hi, my name is Ms. Bailey! This is my 18th year teaching here at Moody Elementary School. I moved to Moody back in 1996 when my oldest daughter was just beginning kindergarten. She is now 26, married for three years, and is graduating nursing school in December 2017. My middle daughter is 25 years old and a graduate of UAB in Public Relations. My youngest daughter graduated last year from Oak Mountain High School. I also have a cat named Lucy, who has been a part of the family the past 14 years.
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 and learning 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.
