Mr. Don Whisenant

My name is Don Whisenant. I am excited to be teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade math at Bridgeport Middle School. 

I am the Junior Beta Club Sponsor for 6-8 and the 8th-grade class sponsor. 

I was a teacher at Stevenson Middle School from August 2015 until June 2020 before coming to BMS.  


My education background:

I graduated from Western Governors University in January 2015 after completing my student teaching at Stevenson Middle School and Bridgeport Elementary. 

I completed teaching secondary math training through Western Governors University after graduating in 2015. 

I graduated from the University of West Alabama with a Master of Education degree, 6-12 Collaborative Education in October 2019. 

I will graduate from the University of West Alabama with an Education Specialist in the area of Collaborative Education in May 2022.

I have served on several committees and task forces to improve the education of students throughout the state of Alabama.  

I enjoy working with middle school-aged children, especially 7th and 8th graders! 

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family. My wife, Carrie, and I have two sons that participate in football and baseball, so we are busy with sports year-round!
