Tammy Townsend » Biography



    My name is Tammy Wade Townsend.  I am married to Jim, and we have four wonderful children.  They range in age from 10 to 17.  They keep me busy in my free time, and I love every minute I get to spend with them.

    This is my 23rd year working at Houston Elementary School.  I taught kindergarten for 12 years and I have been a reading specialist for 11 years.  I am a graduate of Talladega High School and Jacksonville State University.  I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Early childhood/ Elementary Education and a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education.

    I have worked with children in Talladega City for 29 plus years.  I started at a young age working with children through the Talladega Recreation Department.  I always knew I wanted to teach and make a difference in the lives of children.
