    My name is Carol Spiller Andrews.  I  am beginning my 30th year of teaching. I taught Kindergarten for 24 years, first grade for one year and currently I am in my fifth year serving as the Kindergarten Reading Specialist.  I am a life long resident of Tuscaloosa and grew up in the Taylorville community.  I am married to my husband Eric, and we are proud parents to our son Landon. Landon is a junior at the University of Alabama majoring in Geology. 
     
    I enjoy taking long walks, reading, cooking, baking, shopping and watching a beautiful sunset.   I love to collect snowmen and children's books and cookbooks. My favorite color is green, my favorite season is Fall and I absolutely love Key Lime Pie! Another favorite pastime is watching Alabama Football!  I also love to relax at the beach and travel to the mountains.  I am a member of St. Mark United Methodist Church.
     
    Growing up, I always knew that I wanted to be a teacher of young children.  Teaching is one of the most important, challenging and rewarding careers.  I enjoy being involved in young children's lives-watching them grow and learn and knowing that I have hopefully made a difference!
     
    One of my favorite quotes...
     
    Every child deserves a champion - an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can be.
