My name is Heather Wilkerson Hunt and I currently hold the position of library media specialist at Calcedeaver Elementary School. I began my college career at the University of Mobile in the fall of 2001 with a major in Social Science and a minor in Secondary Education. I graduated summa cum laude in the spring of 2004. At the commencement ceremony, I was presented the Bedsole Award and the Alumni Award for having maintained a 4.0 average. In addition, I received the Area Awards for both Social Science and Secondary Education.
I was blessed to receive a job at Adams Middle School (North Mobile County Middle School). I enjoyed every moment of teaching sixth grade social studies to such a diverse group of students. I just knew that I had found my niche. However, as I began to think about returning to school to pursue a Master of Education degree, the thought of becoming a library media specialist entered my mind. With no intent of leaving Adams Middle School or my sixth grade social studies classroom for years to come, I began the coursework for a Master of Education degree in Educational Media at the University of South Alabama. The following school year, an opportunity arose for me to go to the elementary school that I call home. The library media specialist position at Calcedeaver Elementary School became vacant. I applied and to my amazement, I was hired for the job. I decided to return to school in 2009 and I received an Educational Specialist Degree from the University of West Alabama in 2010.
I could not be happier anywhere. I love the students, the parents, and the entire community of Calcedeaver Elementary School. I attended Calcedeaver Elementary School as a child. It was a great school then and it is a wonderful school now. The passion that I feel to ensure the success of every student that I have contact with here is immeasurable. I truly feel blessed to have such a fulfilling career.
I am married to Billy Hunt. I am also the proud mother of a very sweet little girl named Annslee Kate. We enjoy being active members of Reed's Chapel Baptist Church in McIntosh, Alabama. In addition, we find pleasure in attending Native American powwows, watching the University of Alabama play football (Roll Tide!), and traveling around the country.
