Mr. Bradley Blackmon
My name is Bradley Blackmon and I will be teaching 8th grade World History at SFMS. I will also be the head football coach and head girls basketball coach here as well. I am the proud husband to Laura Blackmon, who teaches at Elberta Elementary and the father of a son, Bree, who will be in the 6th grade here at SFMS and a daughter, Mary Michael, who will be starting 2nd grade at Elberta Elementary.
I am a proud 1995 graduate of Foley High School and a 2008 graduate of the University of South Alabama. I started my teaching career at Gulf Shores High School in 2012, where I taught 9th through 11th grade history. When I was at GSHS I was also the head football coach at Gulf Shores Middle School where our team finished with a 5-3 record.
In 2013 I transferred to Elberta Middle School where I have been the last 4 1/2 years. I have taught 8th grade World History and was the offensive coordinator for the EMS football team. During the last four seasons our record was 30-2 with four consecutive county championships. I also coached 7th and 8th grade boys basketball where we finished as runners up twice during that span.
As a teacher I am A+ College Ready trained for teaching advanced World History and was a part of the inaugural Digital Renaissance Teachers Academy in 2013. I love history and I plan on making our class fun and interesting. We will have some projects as well as look at history from the perspective of historians, investigating many cultures and countries that make our world interesting! I believe that it is my duty to present the course of study in a diverse way to suit all types of learning styles.
I am super excited to be a part of Spanish Fort Middle School! Go Toros!
