Ms. Kala Grice-Dobbins

I am Kala Grice-Dobbins. I LOVE my family, teaching, traveling and photography! I have lived in many of the southern states. I went to high school at Arab High School and got my undergrad and graduate degrees from The University of Southern Mississippi. I have a degree in Elementary Ed K-8 with an emphasis in Math and Computer Science. I also have a masters in Instructional Technology Education. I taught high school math in Mississippi for 2 years, then 8th grade math and computers for the next 4. I moved back to Alabama and began teaching 7th grade math here at Sparkman Middle School until 2017-18 school year when I became the 7th and 8th grade technology teacher. From 2017-2019 I taught classes such as Photography, Coding, Cyber Security, CNN/Yearbook, & Video Production. Now, I teach Cyber Patriots and 8th Grade STEM. I LOVE to teach middle school students. I have coached volleyball, bowling, scholars bowl, math team, science bowl and currently coach Cyber Patriots. All of my classes will utilize Google Classroom. Email is the best form of communication. I reply within 24 hours most days.
