Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Annette Vordenbaum
I graduated from Beauregard High School in 1986.
In 1990, I graduate from Auburn University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education.
I received my masters in library media education from the University of South Alabama in 2009.
I attend professional development trainings at least once a month with the Lee County Media Specialist at the Lee County Technology office. I read professional journals and search information online to keep our library and practices current.
In 1990, I received my first teaching job at Russell Elementary in Russell County teaching math to fourth, fifth, and sixth graders. I enjoyed two more years at Russell Elementary teaching first graders. I moved to Opelika City Schools where I taught third grade. I had the opportunity to return home to Beauregard Elementary in 1994 teaching first graders once again. I enjoyed the next thirteen years teaching first graders the joy of reading and increasing math skills.
I feel blessed to be the librarian at Beauregard Elementary since 2007. Our library is a beautiful and well equipped facility. It is a joy to share the materials with our students and teachers. There are many exciting things that happen at BES and some of my favorite things have been the Accerelerated Reader Stars program that awards medallions to students who reach their goals in AR. The Battle of the Books program for our fourth grade incorporates comrehension, vocabulary, fluency, and team work into a game show experience. Book Fairs, Letters and Pictures with Santa, and our latest addition is OVERDRIVE! Overdrive allows students with devices connected to the Internet to checkout ebooks. Our students receive cyber smart training twice a year.
I enjoy time with my family and friends. Auburn University football, reading, listening to all kinds of music, paddleboarding, biking, eating out, and hanging out in the pool are a few of my favorite things.
