About the Teacher
Degrees and Certifications:
I am so excited to be teaching second grade at Margaret Elementary this year!! Second grade is a remarkable year for growth in a student's life and I am blessed to be a part of it. I attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham where I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a duel degree in Early Childhood, as well as Elementary Education.
I live in Margaret with my husband, Sergeant Chet Keenum. We have two beautiful children, Autumn who is going into the 8th grade and Cayden who is going into the 4th. I was born and raised in Trussville. In my spare time I love to do anything outdoors. I enjoy hunting, fishing, softball, skiing, hiking and just relaxing at the beach or lake with a good book.
Teaching is my passion and I have worked with children my entire life. I taught preschool for years and then took a break to become a stay at home mother. After my children started school, I taught adult and children's art classes at Sips N Strokes in Trussville. This is my third year teaching at Margaret. I am blessed to be a part of such an amazing school and community.
