Meet Your Second Grade Teacher

    ~Jill Biden~

    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 be here at Sun Valley for year 18.

    I graduated 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 of 2020, I received 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. 

    I am looking forward to a wonderful year in 2nd Grade!
