Mrs. Margaret Gambino, Special Education/Language Arts

My name is Margaret Gambino. I am a Fairhope Native and have taught Special Education at Fairhope Middle since 1999. I am also the Special Education Department Chairperson. I graduated from the University of South Alabama is 1999 with a BS in Special Education and in 2003 with a MS is School Counseling.

I am in my 14th year of marriage to my best friend, Adam Gambino. Our son Finlay Paul is 10 years old and a student at Fairhope Intermediate 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 teachers can really make an impact on the students. The teenage years are rough; I hope to make the ride as smooth as possible.
