Ms. Melanie McKinzey
I was born in Fairhope, but spent most of my childhood in the sleepy, little town of Aliceville, Alabama. I graduated from Pickens Academy and went to college at Auburn University. I earned my B.S in Elementary Education at Auburn University, then taught school for two years at Robertsdale Elementary. I took a break from teaching to be a full time mom for a few years. I then received my M. Ed. in Library Media from the University of West Alabama. I was the Library Director at Aliceville Public Library for one year, then I became the Library Media Specialist at Newton School. After nine years at Newton, I transferred to Fairhope High School. I thoroughly enjoy teaching high school students. I have two daughters, McKinzey and Kate, who both attend Fairhope High School. Go Pirates!
