Mrs. Jami Mills

Fifth Grade

Literacy and Social Studies Teacher

Hello! I am Jami Mills and I am so excited about teaching 5th grade Literacy and Social Studies this year at CES! 

I grew up in the Great Lakes State of MI but graduated with an Elementary Education degree from Southeastern University in sunny Lakeland, FL. I married a Florida boy 25 years ago! We moved to Birmingham to be youth pastors at LifeChurch Birmingham from 1995-2000. During that stay, I taught at Springville Elementary and loved teaching! Reluctantly, in 2000 we left Birmingham and headed back to Florida. There my husband pursued his master’s degree and we also continued working in youth ministry. In the fall of 2008 we were excited to move back to Birmingham to pastor LifeChurch Birmingham. I enjoyed serving as LifeChurch’s Assimilation Director.  I worked with all different ages and nationalities, coordinating small groups and ministry teams, but felt compelled to get back to my love of teaching!  This is my 3rd year at Cahaba and I love it!

My family and I are Trussville residents…go Huskies! My son is a 2018 graduate from HTHS and is attending UAB to earn his degree as a nurse practitioner. I have another son who will be a senior and a daughter starting her junior year at HTHS. We love Trussville schools and our Trussville community!

This year my goal is to instill a love and confidence in reading for our 5th graders at Cahaba! I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
