Bachelor of Science in Mathematics Master of Secondary Education
My name is Kimberly Sawyer and I am a 6th grade math teacher at Thompson Sixth Grade Center(TSGC). I grew up in Pelham, AL and graduated from Pelham High School in 2005. After high school I attend the University of Montevallo, completing my Masters in 2010. I have enjoyed living a being a part of the Alabaster community for the past 7 years.
This is my second year joining the TSGC team, and I am thrilled to be a part of a wonderful staff and commuity. The past 8 years I have lived in Alabaster and enjoyed working in the surrounding area. My first 5 years of teaching were spent at Shelby County High School in Columbiana, Alabama. I taught multiple levels during my time at Shelby Couny High, but longed to teach the foundations. I accepted a teaching postition at Oak Mountain Middle School following my fifth year and was with Oak Mountain for two years. Teaching at the middle school level has been a wonderful experience, and I was ecstatic to accept a postion in the community in which I live and am a part of. This age student has so much life and energy and that pairs well with my teaching style. I look forward to continuing to make difference in students lives and foster a love of learning and mathematics!
I attended the University of Montevallo and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics. To further my education and become a teacher, I returned to the University of Montevallo, where I also received my Master of Science degree in Secondary Education.
