• Welcome to the 2020-2021 School year. I am your childs teacher Mrs. Tideback. This is the start of my 3rd year of teaching but my first at Pate's Creek Elementary. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Therapeutic Recreation from CSU and my Master's Degree in Science Management from Troy State University. I am married with four children (two of my own Cat and Joseph and two step children Colton and Millie), we are one big happy blended family. I enjoy being outside camping, hiking, kayaking and most of all playing tennis in my free time. During the fall you can find me watching and supporting my Alabama Crimson Tide Football Team, Roll Tide! Besides watching my Crimson Tide, I love watching my students grow throughout the year. My favorite part of teaching is seeing my students succeed. To ensure success in the classroom, I will create a positive and supportive environment that nurtures learning and diversity. I am looking forward to working with you as partners to ensure their success. Remember, we are all in this together. Again, I am so excited to be your childs teacher and looking forward to the many exciting adventures we will explore this year together.
