Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. McGuire is thrilled to be teaching Kindergarten at CES this year! This will be Mrs. McGuire’s 8th year teaching and 5th year in Kindergarten. She also taught first grade for one year, K-1 reading for one year, and also spent a year working one-on-one with special needs students. She earned her undergraduate degree from Birmingham Southern College and her Masters from University of Alabama Birmingham. Although originally from Birmingham, Mrs. McGuire has had the opportunity to live in work in other states including Vermont and Georgia. She loved the experience of learning from diverse groups of teachers and students but knows there's no place like home!
Mrs. McGuire loves Kindergarten because of how excited these young learners are to learn new things! She believes it is such a pivotal year for students to develop confidence and a love of learning. Mrs. McGuire’s main goal is that her students have fun learning and grow in their personal strengths this year!
Mrs. McGuire has been married since June 2016 and had her first child, Sophie, in March 2019. She loves spending time with her family, camping, painting, and traveling. She looks forward to getting to know and love a new group of Kindergarteners this year!
