"I love teaching for Tuscaloosa City Schools because I get the privilege of building relationships with my students, their families, and my coworkers. It gives me the opportunity to grow as an educator and have a positive impact on my community."
"I love that Northridge has many opportunities to get involved, and that everyone's diverse but we are all unified."
"One thing I love about Central is its legacy. A lot of good people have graduated from this school, and it has been a powerhouse. It's a legacy to be proud of, to say that you are a graduate of THE Central High School."
"The students, faculty, staff are the best part about the job," Coleman said. "Seeing the students just coming in warms my heart every day. It's a good group of kids."
"I feel that every student deserves to be in an environment that is loving, that is understanding. I believe that's a big part of teaching, fostering and cultivating that type of environment."
"The best part of my job is getting to interact with my students everyday, talking to them, helping them through their problems. It's been 28 years, and I'm not ready to give them up yet. I just love dealing with my children. I enjoy my little babies everyday. Once they get on my bus, they're mine. They're mine for a lifetime."
