Principal Tammy McMinn

This will be my third year as principal at SMES.  I LOVE this job for so many reasons: a talented and caring faculty, sweet and hard-working students, amazing parents (some of whom I have taught!), and a passionate community.  I am grateful daily to be here with all of you!

I love to learn, and I want our students to feel the same way.  I am dedicated to encouraging an engaging and purposeful curriculum.  Reading is both a beloved hobby and a learning tool that I use daily.  I want our students to love reading, as well!  Technology and cutting edge learning strategies are also some of my priorities at SMES.  My hope is that we build a strong foundation for all of our students to grow and be successful.I am supported by my husband (known by my soccer players as Coach Mike) of 29 years and my five sons.  These six guys have blessed my life with love and laughter- and lots of sweaty socks.  I love Alabama football, reading, traveling, and spending time with  my boys.
