Principal: Mrs. Michelle Brakefield
My name is Michelle Brakefield and I am the principal at Meadow View Elementary School. I began my career in education in 1996 as a first grade teacher at Thompson Elementary School. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education, my Master’s degree in Elementary Education, and a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Montevallo.
Prior to becoming an administrator, I taught kindergarten, first, and third grades. I was an Assistant Principal for two years in Hoover, AL before returning home to Meadow View.
I have been married to my husband, Scott, for 22 years. We have three sons. Noah is a Sophomore at the University of Alabama. Shep and Wynn are twins and in the 9th grade at Thompson High School.
Being an educator is my passion! I look forward to partnering with the families at Meadow View in providing the best education for our students. Building relationships with our faculty and staff, parents, community members and most of all, STUDENTS, is the most important aspect of building a quality academic program. I can’t wait to watch our students grow!
