My name is Jennifer Medley. I am currently in my 12th year teaching K-8 PE and coaching girls’ basketball and volleyball at Unity School. I grew up right across the state line in Madison County, AL and attended Sparkman High School. After high school, I accepted a softball scholarship to play for NWSCC and then two years later, another scholarship to finish up at the University of North Alabama in Florence, AL. I graduated from UNA  with plans to get into the recreation management field. After moving back home from college I coached softball at Sparkman High school, as well as Hazel Green High School for a period of time and decided then I wanted to teach and coach. After graduating from Athens State University with my K-12 Physical Education degree, I heard about Unity needing a PE teacher/coach. I am thankful I found Unity so early in my career! I love teaching and coaching at such a wonderful school with the best students, faculty, staff, and administration. Go LIONS! #greatnessStartsHere
