Ann Marie George
Finding the right place to get the best education for her daughter proved to be quite a challenge and in 2012, Ann Marie George brought her daughter, Mackenzie, to us and never looked back.
As she begins her 5th year here at Churchill, so does Ann Marie. She has dedicated many hours of time to Churchill as a parent volunteer.
Ann Marie is originally from Montgomery and a 1991 graduate of Robert E Lee High School. Upon graduation she was anxious to see the world and enlisted in the United States Air Force. Though she thought it would only be a 4 year tour she found she loved every minute of it and before she knew it she was a career Airman.
In 2014, after 22 years of honorable service, Ann Marie retired. Now she enjoys getting to make up for the time she missed while her children were growing up.
She says, “I love being at Churchill and having a relationship with the students and staff. I think the most important thing a parent can do for their children is be involved and be present in their education and the institution they attend. Mackenzie loves to see me there and I love seeing her smile because I am! Churchill has been a blessing to both of us!”
Ann Marie holds 2 Community College of the Air Force Degrees and will graduate in May 2017 with her Bachelors in Healthcare Administration from Columbia Southern University.
Pamela Brown worked in the Montgomery County School system for 31 years.
She received a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Elementary Education from Auburn University at Montgomery.
Her area of specialty is reading.
Pam believes you must teach with your heart and maintain a good sense of humor.
She enjoys watching students gain confidence and motivation once they become a part of the Churchill Academy student body.
After teaching at Churchill Academy for 6 years, she began working part time in our front office. Pam is a truly multi-talented individual.
Kaye Pair graduated from the University of Alabama with a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Special Education – Emotional Conflict.
Kaye has worked for 26 years in the Montgomery Public Schools in a self-contained, special needs classroom. She was also the lead teacher at the UA Summer Demonstration Program for 3 years.
When she left the public school system and came to Churchill Academy her immediate supervisor said, “She’s wonderful. It will be our loss and your gain!”
Kaye moved to the Coordinator of Support Services position after teaching at Churchill Academy for 7 years.
In this position, she serves as a curriculum coordinator and a student facilitator. She is the liaison between the classroom teachers and the students to insure that the key tenants of the Churchill Academy mission statement are fulfilled.
The title of Student Services Coordinator does not begin to describe Kaye’s significance at Churchill Academy.
