    Mrs. Margaret Gambino  
    My name is Margaret Gambino. I am a Fairhope native and have taught Special Education at Fairhope Middle since 1999. I also served as the Special Education Department Chairperson. I graduated from the University of South Alabama in 1999 with a BS in Special Education and in 2003 with a MS in School Counseling. I am now the 8th grade School Counselor at FMS. 

    I am married to my best friend, Adam Gambino. Our son Finlay Paul attends Fairhope High School. I have two step-children, Leighton and Rocco. We live here in Fairhope and love it! We love entertaining people, cooking, and anything outside. We also like to go on spontaneous mini-vacations!! 

    Many people wonder how I handle Middle Schoolers – I truly enjoy this age group. I feel this is the time that all of us at FMS can really make an impact on the students. The teenage years are rough; I hope to make the ride as smooth as possible.
