Joshua Titford


Native of Fairhope, citizen of the world – I graduated from Fairhope H.S. and went on to earn a Bachelor’s in Music Performance (emphasis on Jazz Guitar) from Loyola University, New Orleans. We were the first graduating class to walk in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2006. Upon finishing, I then signed up with AmeriCorps and began working at Start the Adventure in Reading (STAIR), an after-school reading intervention program targeting at-risk 2nd graders in Orleans Parrish. One of the boys I tutored was a real-life spy boy for a Mardi Gras Indian tribe!

In 2007 I moved back home to Fairhope and began a job with the City of Fairhope, where I worked for twelve years. In the Fall 2018 I enrolled at the University of South Alabama as a grad student, and was asked if I'd like to teach U.S. History at Murphy H.S. while I finished up my student teaching semester (I said yes!) in Spring of 2020. By some miracle, and with help from a pandemic, a diploma was mailed to me with "Masters of Secondary Ed. - Social Sciences" written beneath my name. Go Jags!

In my spare hours I enjoy traveling, spending time with loved ones, kayaking, reading, practicing yoga, and playing music.
