Employees of the Week


FEBRUARY 17 - 21, 2020


Kelli Colley, first-grade teacher at Huguley Elementary School, has been selected as our Certified “Employee of the Week.” Kelli is married to Bryan Colley and they have two children, Hunter and Grayden.

            Kelli is a graduate of Valley High School, and earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Auburn University. She also obtained a Master’s degree in Elementary Education from the University of West Alabama.

            “All students can learn. However, they learn in different ways. As a teacher, it is my job to discover the individual and unique differences of each child, and use this knowledge to teach them effectively,” said Colley. “My goal is for my students to leave my classroom each day knowing that they are smart, accepted, loved and special!”

            In her spare time Kelli enjoys reading, camping, and spending time with family and friends. She and her family also attend Happy Valley Baptist Church.


FEBRUARY 17 - 21, 2020


Dena Allen, Paraprofessional at Fairfax Elementary School, has been selected as our Support Staff “Employee of the Week.” Dena is the mother of three children, Travis M. Holloway, Madison C. Allen, and Jalen G. Allen.

            A native of Chambers County, Dena earned her Associates degree in Massage Therapy from Southern Union State Community College.

            “What I like most about my job is that it offers a different aspect from the general education classroom,” said Allen. “Working with special needs children gives me a sense that I’m making a difference in their lives, not just for them, but for their parents as well.”

            In her spare time Dena enjoys traveling and shopping. She is also a member of St. Paul United Methodist Church in Five Points.
