Olivia Hereford

Hi! My name is Ms. Hereford! I am so excited to be a part of the First Grade Team. Most importantly, to be your teacher! It’s going to be a great year full of new friends, new adventures, and new discoveries! I want to learn all about you, but first I’m going to tell you a few things about me.
I was born and raised in Huntsville, AL and I have two sisters and one brother. Upon graduation from University of Alabama , I moved back home and accepted a teaching position at Dawson Elementary. I believe that my experience and working with a terrific first grade team will help me challenge your child to move to new heights this year!! :)
I have one son, Joshua.
A few of my favorite things:
Color: blue
Treats: chocolate
Sport: volleyball
Drink: coca-cola
Activity: reading
Animals: dogs & cats
