My name is Esther Coleman and I am an employee of Fair Elementary School.  I have worked in the Louisville Municipal School District for 27 years.  I have earned a Bachelor of Science Degree for the University of West Alabama and an Associate of Arts Degree from East Central Community College.  I am the mother of 2 children Latoya Newson and Patrick Coleman and the grandmother of 2, Gregory III and Laila Newson.  My hobbies are cooking and sports.  I am involved in my local church and several state organizations with my church also.  I love working with children and helping them learn new and different things.


My name is Ms. Amy Sanderson.    I graduated at Mississippi State.   I am currently teaching my 13th year. I love to spend time with my family and friends.  I have a niece and nephew that I love to spoil.  We love to talk and watch movies together.  I go to church at Lynville United Methodist Church in Kemper County.  I come home to my cat Sunshine. Mississippi Care Center of DeKalb was a big part of my life at one time.  I like to stop by there and visit with the staff and residents.

I have been teaching for the past twenty years.  I have taught Kindergarten, Preschool, and worked as a Reading/Literacy Coach for Kindergarten and First Grade.  I taught in Louisiana for twelve years.  I am extremely happy to be teaching in my hometown and in the very school where I began first grade many years ago!

 I truly LOVE my job and my students!  I am very blessed to have the opportunity to work with children each day!  My favorite quote or motto is – “Your students will not remember everything you said but they will always remember how you made them feel.”  I strive daily to make each and every child feel special and know that they are loved and valued!
