Mrs. Deanna Spencer

I joined the staff at Owens Cross Roads during the 2016-2017 school year as a Reading Specialist after previous experience teaching 3rd grade, 5th grade, and serving as a Reading Specialist at another county school.  I am a Certified Academic Language Therapist (CALT) and earned National Board Certification in Early-Middle Childhood Literacy.  Working at OCRS doesn't feel like work because of the amazing staff, students, and family atmosphere!  Watching Alabama football and spending time with my husband, friends, and family are a few of the things I enjoy in my free time.
