Ms. Abby Cantrell
Welcome to 2nd grade! My name is Abby Cantrell and I am thrilled to be teaching 2nd grade at Midtown this year. I am from Hazel Green, AL and I graduated from Hazel Green High School in May 2017. Following graduation, I moved to Florence, AL, where I attended the University of North Alabama. I graduated from UNA with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. Currently, I am working towards a Master's Degree in Elementary Education online through UNA. Roar Lions!
Following graduation from UNA in December 2021, I moved back to the Huntsville/Madison area. In January 2022, I was given the opportunity to fill in a 2nd grade leave at Midtown until the middle of February. Once the 2nd grade leave ended, I stayed at Midtown and filled in as the 4th and 5th grade Resource Teacher for the remainder of the school year. During my time at Midtown, I quickly realized that I felt "at home" each and every day. I knew that Midtown was the place for me and I am so grateful to be a Midtown Wildcat!
My favorite part about teaching is that I get to learn alongside my students each day. My goal as an educator is to always be intentional and do whatever I can to help my students grow, not just academically, but socially, emotionally, and behaviorally, too! I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, traveling to the beach and lake, eating sweet treats, and shopping! Let's have a great year!
