Welcome to Mrs. Harrelson’s Algebra I or Pre-Algebra class. I look forward to being part of your learning success and getting to know you. This year begins my 26th teaching year and my 13th year at Fairhope Middle School. I earned both a Bachelor of Science and a Masters of Education in Elementary Education from Auburn University. I also have an add on to my Master's degree in Instructional Leadership from the University of West Alabama. I am Highly Qualified to teach secondary mathematics. I am AMSTI trained as well as Laying the Foundation/Pre-AP A+ College Ready trained. Implementing my training, with the college and career readiness standards, gives a solid foundation for my daily instruction. My educational philosophy is simple. I believe in work- hard work. Seeing each student make academic gains is my main goal for the school year. I also believe in mutual respect and I desire for my students to make wise decisions in regard to their character.
