Mrs. Keenan Fowlkes, M.Ed

Welcome to a wonderful new year at West Elementary! I am thrilled and honored to be your child’s third grade teacher! I wanted to let you know a little bit about me since we had such a busy night at West’s Open House. This is my 14th year to teach! I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from UNA in Florence, AL. I have taught 3rd and 4th grade. My passion is teaching and learning from children each day. In my spare time I love to read, walk, and exercise. My favorite activity/hobby is Crossfit and competing in occasional Crossfit competitions. I am currently getting my personal training license through The American Council on Exercise. 

I am married to Michael, and we are blessed with one child. Brody, our son, is 7 and attends West. I am looking forward to a fantastic year with your child! Each child becomes like my own since we spend many hours together at school. Please always feel free to contact me if you need anything.
