Mr. Don Whisenant

My name is Don Whisenant. I am excited to be teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade 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:

My undergraduate degree in K-8 General Education and Special Education K-12 was earned from Western Governors University in 2015.  I also completed secondary math training at Western Governors University during the 2015-2016 school year. 

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

Professionally, I have served on several committees and task forces to improve the education of all students throughout the state of Alabama for the past seven years. 


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!
