I have been teaching for many years, but I am just as excited about this school year as ever. We have such an amazing classroom and I am so thankful that our community has built this beautiful facility! I am from Hartselle originally and love this community. I graduated valedictorian in 1981 from the first graduating class of Hartselle High School. (It was formerly Morgan County High School.) I graduated with Highest Honors from the University of Southern Mississippi, with a BS in Mathematics and Secondary Education. I played fastpitch softball on scholarship there and was inducted into the Dixie Softball Hall of Fame in 1999. I received a Master's (MA)degree and Educational Specialist degree (EdS)from UAB, both in Mathematics Education. I am the faculty advisor for HHS Mu Alpha Theta (math honor society) and assistant softball coach at HHS. I am married to Guy Battles and we have three children: Noah, Seth, and Sarah Ellen Battles.
