My name is Beth Woodard, and I am the gifted specialist at Madison Elementary School. I received a Bachelor’s of Science in 1997 from Tennessee Technological University.

I also have Highly Qualified status as a teacher in the state of Alabama for grades 1-6.
My teaching career began in the state of Virginia where I spent two years teaching 6th and 4th grades in Fredericksburg City Schools. After staying home with my boys for ten years, I returned to teaching in 2009 with Madison City Schools at Madison Elementary where I spent 6 years teaching 4th grade. In 2015, I accepted a position as a Gifted Specialist with Heritage and Rainbow Elementary Schools. In 2016, I returned to Madison Elementary as the full time Gifted Specialist.
On a personal level, I have been married to my husband Keith since 1997. We have two sons, one in high school and one in college. We have a small dog named Luna and a large fish tank.
