Mrs. Michele Banister

I grew up in Athens, AL and graduated from West Limestone High School.  I received my Bachelor's Degree from Athens State University and my Masters Degree from the University of North Alabama.  I taught fourth grade at R. E. Thompson for three years before transferring to G. W. Trenholm.  This is my  twenty-first year teaching second grade at G.W.T.


When I was growing up I always knew I wanted to be a teacher.  I love teaching and think it is the best job in the world!  Fostering a love of learning is a passion of mine.  

My husband and I have been married for almost 25 years and have two boys.  Jess is 20 and a Junior at Auburn University and a member of the Auburn University Marching Band.  Josh is 17 and a Senior in high school.  They are both in band, so most of my spare time is spent volunteering with band functions.  I love spending time with my family, cooking, reading, and watching Auburn football. 

I look forward to working with you and your child this year!
