Amber Parker Staggs » Bio



My name is Amber Staggs, and I teach English 12 at SHS. In addition to my teaching responsibilities, I am also the faculty sponsor for prom. I have been teaching for five years, and I have spent each of these years at Sparkman. There is truly no other place that I would rather be. Go Senators!

I am a two-time graduate of the University of Alabama. While attending UA, I received a bachelor’s degree in English and a master’s degree in Secondary Education with an emphasis in English Language Arts.

My husband, Matthew Staggs, is also a teacher and coach, so a large part of our lives revolve around school and school functions. In our free time we enjoy attending athletic competitions (especially at UA), reading, spending time with friends and family, participating in church activities, and traveling.

Personal Philosophy of Education: I believe that the purpose of education is to equip students to become skilled participants in the workplace, while also exposing them to a plethora of new ideas, cultures, and experiences. A student’s education only begins with high school; it is my hope that students leave Sparkman with the desire to be lifelong learners.
