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 nineteenth year teaching second grade here.
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 23 years and have two boys. Jess is 19 and a Freshman at Auburn University and a member of the Auburn University Marching Band. Josh is 15 and a Sophomore. 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!
