Who is Mrs. Spencer?  

Hello! Welcome to 7th-grade social studies! I am thrilled to have you in my class! This will be my tenth year in education and fifth year at McNabb. Previously, I taught 6th grade ELA at the former Montgomery County Intermediate School. I hold my bachelor’s degree in Middle Grades Education (Grades 5-9) from Morehead State University and my Master's Degree as a Literacy Specialist from the University of the Cumberlands.

In my spare time, I enjoy camping, traveling, musical theater, and spending time with my husband, Chase, our two girls, Ellie Kate and Bristol, our dogs, Sadie and Bo, and our cat, Rubble. I have lived in Montgomery County my entire life and feel blessed to have the opportunity to work in my hometown and in such a loving school.

I cannot wait to get to know your student and to help them succeed in 7th-grade social studies. This will be a busy year, but I am confident in your child’s success. We will grow, learn, and laugh, all while becoming a closer school family. If you ever need assistance, please feel free to reach out to me through our team Remind, give me a call at school, or reach me by email at
