My name is Rebecca D. Armstrong. I grew up in Randolph County, AL and graduated from R C H S in May, 1981. I met my husband in 1978 and we were married July 18, 1981. My husband's name is Ricky (Coach Armstrong) and he is a retired educator. We live in Talladega, AL and we are members of Greenbrier Church of Christ in Anniston, AL. We have 2 children; Brynn Caldwell and Jack Armstrong. Brynn and Jody have 3 children; Will-17, Ella-15, and Weston, 9. Jack and Terri Leigh have 3 children; Ram-7, Wilson-5, and RayRay-5. I enjoy time spent with my family and friends, enjoying pool time in our backyard, baking and reading. My favorite books are the Bible, Nicholas Sparks novels and anything I'm reading to my grandchildren and students.
I graduated from JSU in April, 1991, with a dual BS Degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education and again in 1996 with my Master's Degree in ECE/Reading Specialist/Technology. We moved to Talladega in August, 1991. I was hired to teach first grade at Houston Elementary in August, 1992. This is the only school system in which I have taught and I am in year 30. I am grateful and blessed to be here.
I have always wanted to be a teacher...just ask my childhood friends how bossy I was playing school on the front steps! I am really excited to be Salter’s Local Reading Specialist for the 8th year. We are going to have a bright year. #SalterStrong
