Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Susanna Whiteside

Welcome to the Hippo Classroom! 

In 2006, I graduated cum laude with a bachelor's degree in Secondary Education, English/Language Arts.  In 2011, I graduated summa cum laude with a master's degree in Special Education.  Both my bachelor's and master's degrees are from Auburn University.  In May 2020, I graduated summa cum laude with my educational specialist degree in the Teacher Leader program from the University of North Alabama.  This is my sixteenth year teaching and my sixth year at Howell Graves Preschool.  I feel so fortunate to be the hippo teacher at Howell Graves!

I am married to Jeff Whiteside, and we have two daughters; Abby and Sarah are both Muscle Shoals Trojans.  In our spare time, we enjoy traveling, cheering on the Auburn Tigers, and going to the lake.
