Meet Your Second Grade Teacher
“Being a teacher is not what I do. It’s who I am!”
I am Andrea Bobbs. I am delighted to be your child’s second grade teacher for the 2020-2021 school year. I am new to Sun Valley, but I am not new to the education field. I have been teaching in the Birmingham City School System since 2004. I spent sixteen years teaching third grade and I am excited to begin year seventeen here at Sun Valley.
I was born and raised in Mobile, Alabama before graduating from Stillman College in December of 2003 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education. I obtained my Master’s Degree from the University of Montevallo in 2009. In December, I will obtain my Ed. S from the University of West Alabama. I believe one should never stop learning!
I have an intrinsic desire to make positive impacts in children’s lives. However, the greatest aspect about being a teacher is the lasting impact students have on me. Watching students grasp concepts provides indescribable joy that motivates me to teach. I cannot imagine myself doing anything else. Being a teacher is not just a job, it is a calling.
It is my goal to not only teach your child in second grade, but to also produce life-long learners. Your children will be encouraged to become divergent thinkers and managers of their own learning. This year for the first time, we will begin virtually. We will work through these challenging times together.
