My name is Michelle Gordon and I'm a second grade teacher at Hokes Bluff Elementary School.  I have been teaching for 23 years and for 18 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 three years ago and attends Gadsden State. 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!"
