September 1999-Present--Kindergarten Teacher at Cleveland Elementary School

My name is Cheryl Friese.  I come from a long line of teachers on my mother's side of the family.  My mother has taught over 30 years, many of those at Hayden Elementary School.  I am enjoying my tenth year at Cleveland Elementary.  I love teaching Kindergarten!  It is truly a blessing to wake up each morning knowing that I get to spend my work day doing something I truly love to do.  When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family.  I have two beautiful daughters.  Jenna is 6 and in Mrs. Vise's first grade class and Kylie is 4 and is in K-3 at Kids Ark.  This year my husband Stephen and I will celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary.  We are members of Gardendale-Mt.Vernon United Methodist Church.  My hobbies include reading and watching Alabama football--Roll Tide.  :)
