3rd Grade

Hello SME! My name is Whitney Humphrey. I am excited to be starting my 11th year of teaching. All of them have been as an SME Cub! I taught 2nd grade for 4 years and this will be my 7th year in 3rd grade. My husband Brandon and I have been married for 5 years and welcomed our little boy, Grey at the start of 2024! We have 2 dogs (Bentley and Kaya) and a cat (Gunner). We love concerts, sporting events, camping, spending time with friends and family, and just hanging out at home. I'm so excited to be starting my 11th year as an SME Cubs! SME is my home and I couldn't be more proud to be a Cub!

We also have a dog named Rizzo. I taught fourth grade in the Chicago suburbs for eight years before taking some time off to be home with my kids. I cherished my time with them, but the classroom was calling me back. Eight years ago, I started back at school as a substitute teacher for Douglas County. I fell in love with SME and started working here full time as an educational assistant. I taught fourth grade for two years and this will be my 5th year in 3rd grade. I am looking forward to a wonderful year!


 [email protected] This is my 16th year at Stone Mountain Elementary and my 19th year in education. I was a 6th grade teacher right here at SME for 11 years and taught two years of 5th grade. I love teaching 3rd graders! My number one goal is to help my students reach their full potential in a safe and caring environment. Plus, we have fun along the way!
