Rebecca Gladney

Hi, Parents! My name is Rebecca Gladney. I am so glad to be a part of the AES family!  I invite you to be an active participant in your child’s school experience.

This is my 11th year in education. I taught 2nd grade for 6 years at McAdory Elementary in Jefferson County, Alabama, then stayed home for 9 years while my children were babies.  I returned to the classroom in 2013 in Alabaster City Schools.   I have a degree in early childhood and elementary education from Samford University. I earned my master’s degree in early childhood education from UAB.  I held National Teacher Certification from 2003 to 2013.    

I was born here in Athens, AL.  I lived here with my dad and mom (who is a retired teacher) until I graduated high school and left for Samford University.  During college, I met my husband, Tommy, and we married 4 weeks after my college graduation.  We remained in the Birmingham area until July 2017.

I have two daughters.  Kate is an 8th grader at Athens Middle School.  She will be a majorette for the middle school band this year.  My younger daughter, Erin, is a 4th grader at Athens Intermediate school.  

Another responsibility that I hold in the Athens City School System is the majorette sponsor for the high school majorette line.  I was a majorette during my time at Athens High School, and I love being back with the majorettes and the Golden Eagle Marching Band.  

When not doing school activities, I like to play piano, spend time with my family, and watch Alabama Football.  Roll Tide!
