I'm Mandy Thurber and I am from a small town in Alabama called Myrtlewood. I graduated from Marengo Academy in 2004. I then attended The University of Alabama where I received my degree in Collaborative Special Education K-12. I earned my masters degree in Collaborative Special Education K-12 from The University of West Alabama in 2012 and I am currently pursuing my Ed.S degree in Collaborative Special Education K-6. I also received National Board Certification in 2018! My incredible co-workers, precious students, and supportive parents are the elements that help to make my teaching experience at Vance so great. I have three very spoiled dogs named Bailey, Gus, and Penny.
