Hi! My name is Becky Fondren. I grew up in Birmingham where I graduated from Banks High School. I received my BS and MS from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. This is my 26th year to teach. This is my 9th year to teach 1st grade. I taught 4th grade my first 9 years of teaching, then I taught Reading Intervention for 8 years.
My husband, Jay, and I have been married for 23 years. We have one son, Luke. He is 15 years old and is in the 10th grade at St Clair County High School. We have one dog named Bailey. In my free time, I enjoy going on mission trips with my family, watching Luke play sports, going to the lake, and watching Alabama football.
I believe in a strong home and school connection. I believe by working as a team, we will help your child be the best he/she can be in first grade. Most of all, I want your child to feel success everyday and to love school and learning.
I am looking forward to a fantastic year at OES!
