Mrs. Colley has always had a heart for teaching children. Her mission began with her own children. This is her second year teaching 2nd grade. Before arriving at fantabulous Florence Howard, she briefly taught 3rd grade at Leinkauf Elementary. She also taught 1st, 3rd, and 5th grade math at the Rotary Youth Club in Point Clear/Fairhope for two summers where she also received certificates of appreciation from the city's mayor, Tim Kant. Mrs. Colley loves learning as well as teaching. She plans on pursuing a terminal degree (Ed.D.) in the near future.

Mrs. Colley grew up in Mobile, AL and attended Murphy High School where she excelled in sports. She loves attending church. She also loves to cook, shop, and travel in her spare time. Mrs. Colley is a big fan of SEC football (ROLL TIDE!) and the New Orleans Saints. She is a happily, married mother of two beautiful, smart daughters.

The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.
