Tracy Dean

Hello!  My name is Tracy Dean.  I have lived in Columbia for most of my life.  I attended Baker Elementary, Whitthorne Middle School, and Columbia Central High.  I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University in 1989.  My husband (Chuck) and I have been married for 29 years, and we have three children: Bentley, Emily, and Andy.  I have four "fur babies":  Lily, Beau, Kittylou, and Harold.  I love spending time with my whole gang!  (husband, kids, my mom (89 years old!), sister, brother-in-law, niece, and nephew).  My favorite "things" are music, a good cup of coffee, chocolate, and time spent with friends and family.  

The best thing about teaching first grade is getting to watch a child grow as a learner as they begin to read and write.  First graders keep me smiling!
