Mr. Michael Baranick

Hello everyone!

My name is Michael Baranick and this is my third year at Gordon Central. I am from Albertville, Alabama and graduated high school there. I received my Bachelors Degree from Jacksonville State University, with a double major in history and political science. I then attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham (Go Blazers!) where I received my Masters Degree in Secondary Social Science Education. I am currently working towards my Doctoral degree in history.

I'm excited about the upcoming school year here at Gordon Central. I'll be teaching Economics and United States History. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask! The best way to reach me is via email, at
