Mrs. Kasey Starnes

Hi, everyone! I'm beyond excited to begin this new journey as FAME Academy's Librarian. Please follow this page to stay in the loop of what your kiddos are learning in the library! Please feel free to reach out with any input, questions, or concerns! Here is a little background information about me!

My name is Kasey Starnes. I am originally from Rogersville and graduated from Lauderdale County High School in 2004. I moved to Tuscaloosa to attend the University of Alabama and earned a bachelor's in Elementary Education. I began my career teaching art in the Tuscaloosa County School System. After teaching art for one year, I spent the next nine years teaching first grade. My final year with TCSS, I served as a reading interventionist for kindergarten and first grade. I taught kindergarten here at FAME for two and a half years before transferring to Library Media Specialist. I have a Master's from the University of West Alabama in Library Media and an Education Specialist degree in Teacher Leader. I am Nationally Board Certified in Early/Middle Childhood Literacy. I am currently pursuing my Instructional Leadership certificate and am projected to finish in the fall of 2023. I am very passionate about teaching and continuously seek opportunities to grow as an educator.

I married my husband, Kyle, in 2018. He is a realtor for Keller Williams. We have a one-year old, Sadie, who keeps us on our toes! We enjoy traveling to new places and experiencing local cuisine (big foodies!). We love being outdoors, spending time with family, and Alabama football.
