Dear Parents and Students,
I hope you had a wonderful summer! My name is Avery Lieske, and I am excited to be your child’s second grade teacher! This year begins my fifth year of teaching. I was previously in third grade for my first four years at Chelsea Park, but I am SO excited about my new adventure in second grade!
I was born in Memphis, TN but moved to Birmingham, AL when I was in the fourth grade. I graduated from Mountain Brook High School then I went to Auburn University where I got my Early Childhood Education degree. This summer I got married to my amazing husband, Johnny. He is in ministry and works for Encounter Ministries. He is the head of campus missions for the Campus House student ministry at UAB. As well as getting married this summer we also adopted a puppy, Malibu, she is the sweetest black lab puppy!
My favorite part about teaching is fostering a love of learning in my students and forming a personal relationship with each student. I believe that developing a great relationship with both the parents and students is essential for a successful school year. Please feel free to communicate any needs, questions, or concerns to me.
