    Welcome to Third Grade

    Mrs. Samantha Braddy

    5th Grade ELA Teacher

     Hello! I am excited to be your child’s 5th  grade ELA, S.S. & Science  teacher for 2021-2022. I am going to focus all of my energies into helping your child reach their full potential. We are going to have a GREAT year bridging gaps and venturing into the unknown. This is my 16th year of teaching, and my third  year at Highland Elementary. I graduated from Jacksonville State with an undergraduate degree in elementary education and a Masters from Jackson State University also in Elementary education. In addition, I have my specialist degree in Administration from Belhaven. I am also trained  in arts integration.  I have a son, Lachlan, who is in  3rd  grade at Madison Avenue Upper.. We have two cats, Silas & Waverley, and two dogs, Krypto & Ace, that have big personalities. I love spending my free time with my husband and son, reading a new exciting mystery, and watching Disney.
