My name is Ali Freeman. I am a first grade teacher here
at Eliot Battle Elementary!
I graduated from the University of Central Missouri with my Bachelor
of Sciencein Early Childhood and Elementary Education in 2008. This
school year will be my tenth yearof teaching. I have taught Kindergarten
for three years and first grade for six years!! I absolutely love our school
and I love teaching first grade! I am passionate about making learning fun
and engaging. I strive to make our classroom a comfortable, flexible,
and loving place to be.
I am married to my best friend, Colin and we live here in Columbia with
our two dogs. We live in a 1920's house that makes us oh so happy. It sure
keeps us busy with all the renovations!! When I am not teaching, I enjoy being
active, creating, and renovating. I'm an avid nature lover and will find any reason
to be outdoors.
