Mrs. Tess Flanagan
Hello! I'm thrilled to begin my sixth year at Holy Spirit as the Resource Room teacher in the elementary school. In 2010, I received my Master's degree in Collaborative Special Education (K-6) from the University of Alabama (ROLL TIDE ROLL!). My undergraduate degree is in Secondary Education, Language Arts (6-12). While in graduate school, I taught in a preschool autism program here in town and then at one in Prattville, Alabama. My husband and I returned to Tuscaloosa (our hometown) in January 2012. We also welcomed our daughter in February of 2016. She is our most incredible gift!

I began teaching in the Resource Room at Holy Spirit in March of 2012, and it has been a true blessing and a tremendous joy. I so look forward to seeing what the 2017-2018 school year brings.
