Hello! My name is Amy Slusher.
I'm a graduate of UAB with a bachelor's degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education. Go Blazers! I have lived in Alabama my entire life. I'm originally from Montgomery and have lived in Birmingham and now Northport. In my free time, I enjoy reading, hiking, gardening, cooking, and spending time with my friends, family, and dog, Simba.
This is my third year teaching 5th grade at Huntington Place. My interest for education was piqued in my early teens when I began volunteering with my church's children's ministry and tutoring middle school students in math. I have been blessed to work with students in many settings since then including as an outreach presenter for the McWane Science Center, a 3rd-5th grade instructor for UAB's summer CCLC (Children's Creative Learning Center), a 5th grade teacher's aide in Hoover City Schools, and a 4th grade reading and history teacher in St. Clair County.
I love teaching in the classroom and look forward to a career of loving, inspiring, and educating children. I believe every student is a capable problem solver, and it's my goal for all of my students to leave my classroom loving to learn and believing in themselves.
