Mrs. Shay Traywick
I feel to be the best teacher for your child, you need to know a little bit about me. I have only taught 5th grade! Therefore, it is truly all I know, well maybe I know more but really enjoy this age and content. I have been married for 17 years to Daniel Traywick and together we have three very energetic girls, Abbie-Lane, Henley & Hayden (twins!). I graduated from the University of Montevallo with my degree in Elementary Education and my Masters in Instructional Leadership. Prior to teaching, I spent the first decade in real estate law and finance but with much prayer I took a leap of faith becoming a teacher. I feel very blessed to teach and fully believe it is my calling.
When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy being at the ball field watching all three of my girls play softball. They all participate in travel softball which keeps our family on the roads and very busy! My oldest, Abbie-Lane, just made her middle school volleyball team so we are excited to see a new sport and continue to cheer her on. Speaking of sports, if your child participates in any extracurricular activities I would love to come when I can. Please keep me in mind when you get those schedules!
I am very honest, loud, and try my best to make most things fun. Together in my class, we will make memories and develop at our individual levels in academic progress. I believe that all students are different, as are adults, and learn in different ways with a variety of needs and strengths; therefore, progress from wherever your child is to as far as he or she can go-is where we will head! Most of all, I believe that to truly have your child succeed in school, we must work together.
