About Me

My name is Lynne Davis, and I am the reading specialist for John Jones Elementary School. I have been employed by the Etowah County system for over 20 years. During this time, I have taught grades K,2, and 3, served on many positions, and worked for the State Department of Education training teachers in the Alabama Reading Initiative. I earned my undergraduate degree in early childhood from Jacksonville State University,  and my masters degree from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I am 100% certified according to Alabama state requirements to teach early childhood grades K-3, reading K-12, and English as a Second Language, grades K-12. 

While not teaching, I enjoy spending time with family, traveling, gardening, decorating, nature walks/hikes, and working out. I am married to a wonderful man named Tim Davis, and together we have been blessed with five children and six grandchildren! They keep us very busy and make our life both interesting and full! 

Working as a reading specialist has given me the opportunity to work with teachers and students in an area that I have much passion for. Helping children learn to read and read to learn is a fulfilling and rewarding task.
