Misti Palmer

A graduate of Athens State, Alabama A & M, and Middle Tennessee State University, I am a veteran educator. I taught 4th grade for 10 years at Ridgecrest Elementary, was Curriculum Specialist at Montview Elementary for 3 years, and I am currently a ESOL Teacher (TESOL) at Dawson, MLK, and Highlands Elementary Schools. I've been married to the love of my life, Rodney, for 7 years, and we have a 13- year-old daughter (that I fell in love with when I met Rodney) and a 2-year-old son (that I adore beyond words). I'm excited about working with my wonderful ESOL students, but more importantly, I am proud to be a part of the Dawson, MLK, and Highlands families!
