Subjects Taught
1st Grade


I graduated from the University of South Alabama in 2002 with a BS degree. 

I graduated from the University of South Alabama in 2008 with a Master's Degree in Elementary Education.


I have been teaching 14 years in Mobile County.  This is my 9th year to teach 1st grade, and I absolutely love it!  This age is so rewarding because the students are so eager to learn!


My name is Michelle Gaston and this is my 10th year at O'Rourke Elementary School.  However, this is my 14th year teaching in the Mobile County Public School System.  This is my 9th year teaching 1st grade.  I absolutely LOVE teaching this age group.  It is wonderful to see the progress the students make during the school year.  I have completed my Master's Degree in Elem. Education. 

I have a son who turned 9 years old this past July.  He will be in 4th grade this year.  He is definitely a handful....he keeps me busy.  Family is important to me!  I strongly believe that you don't have anything if you don't have family.

I know this will be a GREAT year.  Please email me if you ever need anything or have any questions.  I check my email daily, so this is a good way to communicate with me!
