Mrs. Megan Smallwood

I graduated from Samford University in 2006 with a degree in Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, and Special Education. I received my Master’s degree in Early Childhood/ Elementary Education from UAB in 2010.

I taught Kindergarten for 7 years at Woodmeade Elementary in Decatur and 7 years at Gardendale Elementary before moving to Barkley Bridge in 2020. All of my teaching has been in Kindergarten; that age is truly my passion!

I live in Hartselle with my husband, Adam. We have two boys, Carson and Cade, who will also be at Barkley Bridge. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, attending church, hiking, and being outdoors.

I absolutely love teaching Kindergarten! I strive to develop a love for learning in my students that they can carry with them for a lifetime. I can’t wait to meet my new students and embark on another adventure in learning!
