Ms. Becki Ducote

My name is Becki Ducote. I am looking forward to another great and exciting year! Summerdale School is one of only two schools in Baldwin County that is a Pre-K through 8th grade school.  Our students, parents, faculty, staff, and community have become a "family". Parents are an important part of what makes you feel the "hometown atmosphere".  We like to call ourselves "the hidden gem of Baldwin County". We do our very best to make new students feel at ease, comfortable, and welcome.

Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Robert Weichert, III

I received a BBA from the University of Wisconsin in Marketing, a graduate degree in education from the University of West Alabama, and an Educational Leadership Certificate from the University of South Alabama. After working many years in the private sector, I was offered an opportunity to become a special education teacher and coach at Baldwin County High School. I hope to continue to make a positive impact in student's academic achievements, help recognize their individual genius, and aspire them to becoming lifelong learners.
