Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Amber Montgomery
Hi families! My name is Amber Montgomery, and I graduated from Lee University in May of 2007 with an undergraduate degree in elementary education. After teaching for three years, I went back to school and earned my Masters of Education from Lincoln Memorial University. During my educational career, I am blessed to have been named Teacher of the Year on two occassions, and I currently serve as the English/Language Arts Teacher Leader for Yates. I absolutely love coming to work because teaching is not just my job; it is my calling. I look forward to a fun and rewarding year with your child!
I have been married to the love of my life (Clayton) since June 2007. It is wonderful going through life with your best friend! Clayton is my biggest supporter, help-mate, and best friend. He also comes in handy when moving heavy furniture around in my classroom! My other loves are my two children: Addison and Brock. Having children has been the greatest joy in my life. I am so glad God chose me to be their Mommy! We attend First Baptist Church where I am on the Women's Ministry Committee. My life verse is Psalm 37:4, "Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart."
