My name is James Talton and I have been a part of Springville schools for eleven years.  I received by Bachelor of Science from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in Elementary Education, my Master of Science in Education from Samford University in Elementary Education where I also received my Educational Leadership certification.  I began my professional career as a third grade teacher at Erwin Elementary and later taught third grade at Kermit Johnson Elementary.  At Springville Elementary I was a second grade teacher for six years and served as the math interventionist for two years.  I had the opportunity to be the Assistant Principal at Springville Middle School for one year before returning to the Elementary School as the Principal for two years.

At Springville Middle School, we take pride in providing students with the best educational experiences possible. SMS is fortunate to be a part of a supportive community that shows great pride in our school.  We have teachers that work diligently to provide for the overall well being of students.  We know that parents are an important factor in our students' success, therefore, our goal is to work with all stakeholders to provide a quality educational experience for all students.
