Ms. Candace Gifford - 4th Grade ELA & S.S.

Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Candace Gifford


My name is Candace (Akin) Gifford. I have lived in Bledsoe County all of my life, and I am honored to be teaching in the county. I have been married seven years and live with my husband in Cold Springs. We have one child, a son named Carter. He is a very energetic three-year-old! I love to travel; I have been blessed to travel to places like Australia, Fiji, Italy, New Zealand, and Hawaii. I also love to read in my spare time. I am thoroughly enjoying my teaching career at Mary V. Wheeler, and I’m very excited to begin my tenth year teaching.
