Mr. James Terry
2nd Grade Teacher at Pinson Elementary


Dear Second Grade Students and Parents,

I welcome you to Second Grade. I am James Terry and I am delighted to be your teacher for the 2016-2017 school year.  I look forward to working with both you and your child as they continue their journey through elementary school. My goal is to challenge, guide, and help your child become the best version of themselves.

I am the proud son of two military parents and have lived in various places both domestic and abroad. I am a recent graduate from the University of Alabama at Birmingham with a degree in Early Childhood and Elementary education. I worked for several years in the non-profit business world before deciding to become a full-time teacher.  As C.S. Lewis once said, ““You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”

Feel free to contact me by calling 205.379.5050 or email me at 

Mr. Terry
