    Bio

    Hi! My name is Leta Wilson and I teach 1st Grade at Taylorville Primary!

    I grew up not far from here in Coker (a suburb of Tuscaloosa!) and attended Westwood Elementary, Northport Junior High and Tuscaloosa County High (the old one!). After high school I went to the University of Montevallo where I completed my undergraduate and master's degrees.  I taught at Vance Elementary for 8 years. I moved to the Taylorville Primary School in 2005 and have been here ever since!! In my 20 years of teaching I have taught kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade and been a Reading Coach. My husband Chase is a P.E. teacher at Buhl Elementary. We have two sons, Carson, who is 14 years old and is a 9th grader at Hillcrest High School and Jon Coleman who is 9 and is a 4th grader at Englewood Elementary. I enjoy being with my family, spending time at my church, SINGING, watching my boys play sports, and traveling.
