Mrs. Maddie Garrett

Hi! My name is Maddie Garrett and I teach 5th grade reading at Paine. This is the twelfth year of my teaching career, tenth year in 5th grade, and eighth year at Paine. I am originally from Dallas, Texas, but moved to Alabama in 2005. I attended the University of Alabama (ROLL TIDE ROLL!) and graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I earned a Master of Arts in Educational Psychology from the University of Alabama in 2017.

I am married to Coach Garrett who teaches and coaches in Trussville. When we're not at Husky football games, we enjoy watching and attending Alabama football games, spending time with our family and friends, and being at home with our dog, Murphy.
