Hello My Name Is...

Vanessa  Wallace

5th Grade

I am a graduate of the University of Alabama in Birmingham.  I am a highly qualified teacher certified in 1-6 grades.  I started out my teaching career at Central Park Christian School.  After leaving there, I became Director of Education at one of Sylvan Learning Centers locations.  I held this position for 3 years.  Jefferson County is where I have lived most of my life, and I wanted to teach there.  I got the opportunity to teach in Jefferson County in 2002 at Adamsville Elementary in a temporary position.  The following year I transferred to Erwin Elementary where I taught for the next 3 years.  I enjoyed my time at Erwin, but I wanted to be closer to Pleasant Grove where I reside.  I transferred to Hueytown Elementary nines years ago, and it has been the happiest nine years of my teaching career.  I feel very blessed to be able to teach at such a wonderful school.
