Mary Ann McCrary's family moved to Huntsville from Georgia in 1983 when her father was called to serve on staff at Whitesburg Baptist Church. She graduated from Grissom High School in 1988. She received a B.S. in Elementary Education from Athens State University and taught in Augusta, GA, Opelika, AL, and Madison County, AL for 10 years before having children. Over the past 15+ years she has taught several homeschool classes and tutored students in reading and writing. She has had the opportunity to work with mostly middle school and high school students over the last few years and has found God has given her a heart to love and serve students in this age group. She and her husband George are blessed to have two boys - Will and Ethan. They are active members of Southwood Presbyterian Church serving on the Host Team and in the Student Ministry. In her spare time she enjoys reading, gardening, hiking, and spending time with family and friends. One of her favorite Bible passages is Psalm 103.
