Mary Tate

Though I've taught many years in multiple grades, teaching first grade is the hardest, most wonderful job I have ever had. The children grow so much in first grade. Every day brings awakenings that thrill and excite. I am truly blessed to sit at the feet of "little people". 

I am a member of the Church of Christ at Meridianville. I love serving the Lord as I serve others. I am married to my high school sweetheart, Greg, and we have two
married children: Laura (Kris), Hailey (Ben). Ben and Kris are the sons I always wanted! I am a Mimi to four of the greatest grandchildren ever: Owen, Reese, Eden, and Emma! (I should have started with them!!!)

I am Native American, and a native of Madison County. I attended Walnut Grove, Hazel Green, and New Market school’s for elementary and middle school. I graduated from Buckhorn High School. I am forever a BUCK!! I enjoy reading, traveling, gardening, antiquing, cooking, singing, crafting, Atlanta Braves baseball and ALABAMA football!! ROLL TIDE!!!
