Ms. Rachael Gardner
I am so excited to begin my 18th year of teaching and my 17th year at Meadow View Elementary. I have been teaching 1st grade for 15 years. I taught 3rd grade at Bessemer City Schools for one year from 2000 to 2001. I joined the Medow View family in October of 2001 and taught kindergarten before joining 1st grade in the fall of 2002. I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education from the University of Montevallo. I also serve as a teacher representative for the MVES PTO Board. I enjoy working with your fabulous PTO Board.
I was born in Alabama and have lived in Shelby County most of my life. I graduated from Pelham High School. I currenty live in Chelsea. I have two sons, Reid (20) and Cole (18). They both will be living in Auburn and attend Southern Union in Opelika. Reid graduated from PHS like me in 2015. Cole graduated this past spring from Helena High School. We enjoy sports, the lake, beach, and just being outside! We also love AUBURN football! WAR EAGLE!!!
