Mr. Marrow Gordon
Welcome. This is my fourth year at Mountain Brook Junior High, however this will be my 12th year teaching Exceptional Education at the middle school level. I grew up in Decatur, Alabama, but my father was in the military and we moved around a great deal. I graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelor of Science in Restaurant Management and a Master of Arts in Secondary Education- Social Science. I also hold a Master of Arts in Secondary Collaborative Exceptional Education from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Before coming to Mountain Brook, I was a 6th & 8th grade Exceptional Education teacher at Clay-Chalkville Middle School and most recently taught 8th grade Exceptional Education at Pizitz Middle School for four years. Outside of the classroom, I coached girls' basketball and tennis at CCMS. I coached softball and 7th grade football at Pizitz. This will be my first year coaching cross country. You will also see me in the mornings and afternoon doing traffic duty. I will be teaching 8th grade Exceptional Education this year at Mountain Brook Junior High School.
I have been married to my lovely wife Rebecca Kracke Gordon for eighteen years and she is a proud alum of Mountain Brook High School. We do not have any children, but we love our three pets and they are a large part of our family. Oscar the black lab, Cledus the bloodhound, and Gilbert the tabby cat keep us busy. This is going to be a terrific year and I am extremely excited to teach and coach your children in the best school system in Alabama.
