ETS College Board AP reader. I have been scoring the AP Language and Composition exam since 2015. I have traveled to Kansas City and Tampa each summer to score and collaborate with other AP teachers from around the world. I have scored all three essay types:  Synthesis, Rhetorical Analysis, and Argument.

I am a presenter for the A+ College Ready program which works to increase access to and success in Advanced Placement courses for underserved students across the state.  I travel to schools and work with teachers and students during AP Saturday Study Sessions. 

In December 2019, I was selected as Autauga County's Secondary Teacher of the Year!

I am on the Board of Directors of the Alabama Network for National Board Certified Teachers as the Communications Secretary.

Bio

My husband and I both work in the English department here at the high school.  We have two young daughters who keep us very busy. I am an avid SEC college football and softball fan, but my favorite team of all time is obviously The Alabama Crimson Tide (Roll Tide Roll)!

I absolutely love being a teacher.  Seeing the students put their heart and soul into their work and then reap the benefits of that productive struggle are what makes my job worthwhile.  I truly cherish the connections I am able to make with each student in the pursuit of their goals.  

I am very appreciative of communication with my students and their parents.  I am easiest to reach via email. My email address is: andrea.forrester@acboe.net

I look forward to having an outstanding school year!
