Mrs. Traci Branum


My name is Traci Branum. My husband and

I along with our eleven-year-old twin boys reside

in Bay Minette. My husband has been a lifelong

resident of Bay Minette, but I am not originally 

from Alabama. I grew up in Salinas, California

until the age of 18 years old in which my father

was tired of the traffic and crowded areas,wanted

to move to Oklahoma; we packed up and moved.

In Oklahoma I did meet my future husband who

was only working in Oklahoma due to an ice storm

we had experienced. So, that is how I ended up in

Alabama, which I do not foresee any more moving

in the future. Furthermore, I feel exceptionally

blessed to be working at Perdido School.


I started my teaching career as a 7-10th grade science

teacher in Oklahoma. After teaching in Oklahoma,

I then taught in Georgia as a 7-10th grade science/math

teacher. My husband and I decided to move back to

Bay Minette. Returning to Bay Minette, I gained 

employment as a science teacher at Escambia

County Middle School in Atmore, Alabama.

Currently, this is my seventh year at Perdido

School serving as the school counselor.
