About Mrs. Whitlock
Hi! My name is Alicia Whitlock. I’m so excited to teach you Science this year! This is my 20th year of teaching. I am married to Craig and have four children, two daughters, one son, and one son-in-law. I also have two grandchildren, Selah and Shep! My oldest daughter, Taylor is married to Matt. Hailey is a junior at AUM. Andrew is a seventh grader at MMS. Last, at home our youngest babies, are fur babies, Buddy and Bear.
I graduated High School in 1997 from Enterprise High School in Enterprise, Alabama. I then received both an AA and AS in 1999 from Enterprise State Junior College. After that I attended Troy State University (TSU) in Dothan and began their elementary education program. After two semesters at TSU Dothan my husband received a promotion and we relocated to Tallahassee, Florida. Once there, I attended Flagler College at the Tallahassee campus. I graduated summa cumulate in May of 2004. I finished my Graduate degree with Grand Canyon University (GCU) in June of 2007. GCU is based out of Phoenix, Arizona, and I participated in one of their online programs. I received my Masters in Education Administration and was able to maintain summa cumulate status at GCU. In May of 2023 I completed my National Institute STEM certification. Currently I am working on my National Board Certification.
When my oldest daughter began kindergarten in August of 2001 I was a routine volunteer and certified substitute at her school, Gilchrist Elementary. By January of her Kindergarten year, her school hired me as a full-time aide in an ESE (special needs) classroom. While serving as an aide I also served as PTA President for Gilchrist. After my time as an aide I served as a permanent substitute for Gilchrist in grades Kindergarten through fifth. I also interned at Gilchrist in second grade. I landed my first teaching job in Tallahassee, FL at Kate Sullivan. While there I taught both fifth and fourth grade. When we moved to Deatsville in December of 2005, I was able to get a job teaching third grade in Montgomery at Brewbaker Primary. Then, I taught first grade at Coosada Elementary for three years. After Coosada, I moved to Airport Road when it opened in 2009 and stayed there for 13 years. At Airport Road I taught both 3rd and 4th grade. I am currently a 6th grade teacher at Millbrook Middle School, teaching Science. I have enjoyed all of my experiences and journeys in education; and am happy to continue to serve in the classroom.
