Ms. Kecia McAlpine
Greetings & Salutations! I was born in Birmingham, Alabama and a graduate of Woodlawn Magnet High School. I received my Bachelors of Arts degree from Talladega College. I love reading, research and public speaking and acquired a degree in English LIterature with a minor in Journalism. I still have hopes of one day being the next Oprah or at least discovering the next one in my language arts classroom.
I have taught language arts for the past 24 years in sunny South Florida. My teaching portfolio not only includes language arts but also teaching journalism, drama, leadership skills & development and SAT Prep. My services have not only assisted students but I also served as a trainer for the NTA (New Teacher Academy) for Broward County Schools in order to help new teachers navigate the system in order to become a master teacher.
My 13 year old son and I made the 800 mile treck from the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area to Birmingham this past June (2017) in order to be closer to family and we are elated to be part of Alabaster City Schools.
