Amy DavisonI was born and raised in the mountains of North Carolina and graduated from Appalachian State University with a B.A. in English and a M.A. in Student Development. I received a Master of Science in Elementary Education from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I have been a preschool teacher at the Kilby Child Development Center for eight years. My husband (who teaches Biology at the University of North Alabama) and I have one daughter. My family considers me a good cook and I enjoy cooking with the preschool class. We make the best breads! As a hobby, I collect children’s books. My favorite authors are Eric Carle and Margaret Wise Brown. I love to introduce favorite books to my preschoolers and always enjoy seeing their faces when they hear a wonderful children’s book for the first time!
