Chad Summerford, Principal

Mr. Chad Summerford

Hello, my name is Chad Summerford.  I grew up in Falkville and attended school Kindergarten through 12th grade at Falkville.  After I graduated high school, I attended Calhoun Community College and Athens State University receiving my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.  I have received my master’s degree from Samford University in Instructional Leadership.  I worked at Falkville Elementary School as a substitute and one-on-one aide while I was in college getting my bachelor’s degree.  Once I graduated I was hired at Danville-Neel Elementary as a 2nd grade teacher.  I taught there one year before being hired at FES.  While being at FES, I have taught Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd grade, 5th grade, and have been the instructional coach/reading specialist. I have always dreamed of being the principal of FES.  My dream has come true.  I have big things in store for our school.  I want us to be the BEST!!! I love children and couldn’t be happier with the job I am doing. My favorite thing about FES is the outdoor campus on sunny days.

I am married to Dee and we have two sons, Jud and Grant.  My wife is the secretary at FES.  We are all at the same place for work/school.  I love spending time with my family and being outdoors: working in the yard, swimming, being at the lake, etc.  I am also involved in the work of our family farm.  We are members at No Fences Cowboy Church in Falkville.

FES is the BEST!!!
