My name is Michelle Harper, and I’m so excited to be joining the staff at Decatur High
School this fall as an English teacher. I have degrees from both UAB and the University of Alabama and have previously taught high school English in both Blount and Cullman counties. I currently teach English Composition I and II, as an adjunct at Wallace State College. I live in Cullman with my lab, Fletcher, and my daughter when she is home from college.

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, hiking, and of course, reading. I like almost any fiction, but some of my favorites are Harry Potter, Jane Austen, historical fiction, YA fantasy and dystopian novels, and British rom-coms. I also love spending weekends at the gulf, where I enjoy riding wave runners, paddle boarding, and lying on the beach with a good book. I can’t wait to meet you all and get started on this new chapter. 

Go, Red Raiders!
