Mrs. Sharla Birdsong

I was born and raised in Athens, Alabama and graduated from Athens High School in 1995. I attended the University of Alabama and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education in 1999. After graduating, I was hired with Shelby County Board of Education which began my teaching career. While teaching, I continued my education and earned a Master's Degree in Educational Administration from the University of Montevallo. I've taught various grade levels (K,1,2 and 3) and was an Assistant Principal before beginning my experience with Athens City Schools. I have taught third grade for 10 years and served as the Title I teacher at Julian Newman Elementary School. I am also married and have two daughters. As the Principal of JNES, I look forward to a wonderful school year!
