Mrs. Haylee Black

This is my 15th year teaching. I attended the University of Montevallo as an undergraduate and as a graduate student. While enduring my student -teaching practicum (working without pay is always fun), I found that God was calling me to be with middle school kids. After graduating with my Masters of Arts in Education in 2004, I felt at home here at Odenville Middle School. I love middle schoolers, and I serve the children and families of Odenville wholeheartedly.

I love English Language Arts, and hope to inspire my students to love it, too. I have been married for 16 years. Our daughter, Lynlee, is in the fifth grade, and we have a son, William, who is  4 years old. Enjoying reading and binge-watching TV shows on Netflix are what I love to do when I get a chance. Harry Potter and The Hunger Games are my favorite series, while A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is my favorite book. My favorite team sport is football- ROLL TIDE! My favorite food is nachos. If I could live anywhere in the world, it would be in the Appalachian Mountains in a cabin with my family and my books.

I am excited to get to know my seventh graders and to read LOTS and LOTS of books with them this year!
