1st Grade

"I am so grateful to be at SVS! After graduating high school in Montgomery, I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in elementary education 2015. I spent my first year of teaching as an English teacher in Hainan, China. From there, I moved back home to Montgomery, AL and taught second grade in a classical school for two years.I then moved to Birmingham and took a two year hiatus from teaching in which I took teaching courses, taught ESL from home, and honed my hand-lettering skills. I have a passion for teaching young students, specifically teaching reading and mindfulness. I am beginning my second year at SVS teaching first grade and I couldn’t be more excited. I live in Birmingham with my partner, Scott, and our pets, Abel and Dorian. I enjoy reading, hiking, painting, gardening, and thrifting in my free time." - Alyssa Branton, 1st Grade
