Tracy Dean

Hello! My name is Tracy Dean and I have lived in Columbia for most of my life.  I attended Baker Elementary, Whitthorne Middle School, and Columbia Central High School.  I graduated form Middle Tennessee State University with a BS degree in elementary education in 1989.  My husband (Chuck) and I have three kids (who are actually adults now 🙂) and four fur babies!  I love spending time with my whole gang...husband, children, sister, brother-in-law, niece, and nephew!  My favorite "things" are music, a good cup of coffee, great food, (especially chocolate) and time spent with precious friends and family.

The best thing about teaching first grade is getting to watch a child grow as a learner as he/she begins to read and write.  First graders keep me smiling!!!
