My name is Michelle Gordon and I'm a second grade teacher at Hokes Bluff Elementary School.  I have been teaching for 25 years and for 21 of those years I have been blessed to be a part of the HBES family. HBES is a great school.  Both of my children have attended HBES, HBMS, and HBHS. My oldest son graduated from HBHS 7 years ago and my youngest son is in the U.S. ARMY. (I am a proud "Army Mom")-I am proud of both my boys! I am a graduate of Jacksonville State University and the University of Alabama. I was honored to be selected HBES teacher of the year for the 2007-2008 school year.  I am considered a highly qualified teacher in accordance with the "No Child Left Behind" requirements.  I love being a teacher and find it very rewarding. I believe every child can learn.  My motto as a teacher is "WHATEVER IT TAKES!"
