Miss Madelyn Devaney

Hello! My name is Madelyn DeVaney and I am a first-grade teacher at Weeden Elementary School. The 2021-2022 school year will be my first year teaching and I am looking forward to all of the learning and fun to come. I graduated from the University of North Alabama with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and am certified to teach K-6th grade. While in college, I worked at Kilby Laboratory School in their after-school program and also served as an ambassador for the College of Education and Human Sciences. In 2019, I earned my Substitute Teaching License and have been substitute teaching in local schools for the past two years. In January 2021, I conducted my Student Teaching Internship at Forest Hills Elementary school in first grade and successfully completed all requirements to gain my teaching certification in Alabama. I knew then I wanted to be a Florence Falcon and I am so grateful to be a part of the wonderful things happening in our district. Roar Lions and Go Falcons! Let`s have a great school year! 


More about me: 

- I graduated from Muscle Shoals High School with honors. 

- I have lived in the Shoals all of my life and I am grateful for the opportunity to give back through my profession! 

- My immediate family includes my Mom, Dad, younger brother John, and our dog Sam. 

- I attend First Baptist Church in Florence.

- Quality time with my loved ones is a very important part of my life. 

- Coffee and warm teas are something I enjoy every day! 

- I have known teaching is my calling for the majority of my life and student success is my biggest priority at school! 


I believe every child can learn and my goal is to provide a space for every child to achieve their own personal best.
