Mrs. Tina Marie Towers

My name is Tina Towers.  I feel very blessed to be the principal of Barkley Bridge Elementary School.

I have been in education for 32 years.  I began my career in Arkansas where I taught kindergarten for 15 years.  My husband’s company moved us to Mississippi where I taught 2nd grade for 2 years.  In 2005, we moved to Alabama where I taught kindergarten and 1st grade.  I taught first grade and was the Reading Coach/Instructional Partner at F.E. Burleson Elementary.  My former position was the Coordinator of Curriculum and Professional Development for Hartselle City Schools.   I was also the Pre-K Director for HCS.  As you can see, I have had many different educational experiences in 32 years.  I feel that all of these opportunities will help me to be the best leader of Barkley Bridge I can be.

I am married to Tim Towers.  He is a Branch Manager for Helena Chemical Company.  My oldest son, Adam is 30 years old and lives in Jonesboro, Arkansas. He works for Adama Chemical Company.  I have a daughter-in-law, Kristen, and a grandbaby, Keller.  My youngest son Mason is 24 years old. He graduated from Mississippi State University and now works for Helena while living in Tennessee  We are an outdoor loving family.  We love to fish, hunt, and play sports.  


I was born and raised in Hot Springs, Arkansas.  I graduated from Fountain Lake High School.   I went to Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas where I earned my BS in Education/Early Childhood.  I received my Masters in Educational Leadership from The University of Alabama.  

I am so happy to be a part of the Barkley Bridge Elementary family. We have a wonderful staff at BBE, our goal is to give our students the best education they can receive.  The learning taking place at BBE is active, fun, and engaging.    Please feel free to contact me if you have any need.  

My motto:

Be respectful, love one another, love learning, and be happy!!  :)
