Mrs. Brittany Sockwell

I married Drew Sockwell on June 20, 2015, in Gulf Shores. When I married Drew, I also became a *second momma* to a precious boy, Landon. He is beginning his freshman year at Deshler High School. Drew and I had our first child together in October 2016- Evan Fitzgerald, "Fitz." He is a first grader this year at GWT. In early 2021, we welcomed a 3rd boy to our family, Theo. I am the ultimate BOY MOM. Life with my guys is pretty amazing! We also have three dogs: Darby (labradoodle), Millie (goldendoodle), and Bo (mini schnauzer). 

I have always had the pleasure of calling Tuscumbia my home. I attended Tuscumbia City Schools and have always been proud to call myself a tiger- a DESHLER tiger that is!  My family and I attend Parkview Baptist in Tuscumbia. I have been on several mission trips, all allowing me the opportunity to work with kids.

One of my absolute favorite things to do is read! When I was a child, I never wanted to go outside and play- I wanted to read as much as I could! During the summers, I would join the reading club at the Helen Keller Library and read as much as I could in those two months out of school. Mrs. D introduced me to Harry Potter when I was 11, and I have to say it is my absolute favorite book series! I have read each book AT LEAST 5 times. For me, reading enables the mind to be imaginative and escape the every day world. The Hunger Games series and Divergent series are also some favorites. Other than reading, I love trying out new cooking recipes (thanks Pinterest!) and spending time with my family & friends doing anything- movies, shopping, traveling, etc. One of my favorite trips was to New York in the summer of 2014. My mom and I traveled with friends to get our own experience of "The Big Apple"- it's one of my favorite memories!! I realized my love for Broadway shows and my hatred for big cities! I loved my time there, but I have never been so grateful for my Small Town, USA! Oh, and I can't get enough Alabama Football~ ROLL TIDE!
