    Hello, I am Mr. Borden. I teach 7th grade academic scholars and regular English-Language Arts. This is my seventh year year teaching at SVMS. I grew up in the Shoals area in North Alabama. I moved to the Tuscaloosa area in August 2012 when I was hired at SVMS. I love it here and would not rather be anywhere else. In my spare time, I like to read, play my guitar, sing, travel, write, spend time with my church family at Northport church of Christ, and go to Alabama football games! ROLL TIDE!
