About Me
 

Hello-

My name is Brianne Calhoun, and I am licensed to teach high school English in North Carolina. I earned a Master of Arts Degree in teaching from Salem College in 2013 and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English with a focus in writing from High Point University. I have worked in an alternative school setting for a few years, teaching all levels of high school English.

Before earning my teaching certification, I had worked in some capacity with children throughout the past 21 years: afterschool counselor, nanny, substitute teacher, and now licensed teacher. Being a teacher is the most rewarding experience (next to being a mother) in which I have ever been involved.
 
Seeing my students grow into productive citizens is the best part of my professional career. I work to advocate for the benefit of my students and promise to do my best to help all students to grow socially as well as academically to become the best version of him or herself. I differentiate my lessons so that all students are met at their individual levels. If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me so that we can work together for the benefit of our youth.
