    All About Mrs. Childers:

           I am originally from Jasper, Alabama.  I am married to Joseph Childers and we recently celebrated our seventh wedding anniversary this summer.  He is a P.E. teacher at Hillcrest High School and coaches basketball and golf.  We have one child, named Faith, who will turn ONE the first week of school!  We prayed for her for six years and we are so grateful God finally brought her to our family through the miracle of adoption.  She has completely changed our lives for the better and we are so blessed to spend the rest of our lives with her.  We also have a precious three pound Yorkie-Poo named Ally, who is 13 years old.  
           In our spare time, we enjoy spending time with our friends and family, being involved in our church, going to the beach, and walking in our neighborhood.  We also love attending Hillcrest and Alabama sporting events.  Go Patriots and Roll Tide! :)
           I am so blessed to have the opportunity to begin my tenth year of teaching and my very first year at Big Sandy Elementary!  I am SO excited to officially be part of The Big Sandy family!  Education is the most rewarding career imaginable and I'm so thankful to call it "home".  I am passionate about making a difference in the lives of young children and I hope to be the role model that might change their lives forever.  Thank you for sharing your child with me!  Find our classroom on Facebook under "Whitney Childers Class" to stay up-to-date with pictures, field trips, art activities, and weekly reminders!
