Mrs. Chelsea Brawner

Diamond Nunez

The Teacher of the Month for November is Mrs. Chelsea Brawner. I asked some questions to get to know her a little better.

Q: Where did you go to school and college?

A: I went to school in Macon County, and I attended college at Tennessee Technological University.

 

Q: How many kids do you have?

A: I have three kids, four if I include my husband.

 

Q: Do you have any talents?

A:  I’m pretty fluent in sarcasm.

 

Q: What do you do during your free time?

A:  Hahahaha, what is free time?

 

Q: Tell me how you felt the first year of teaching?

A: I was completely terrified. There is nothing in college that can actually prepare you for teaching as a career.

 

Q: What made you want to teach English?

A: I figured that if I was good at it, I might as well make a career out of it.

 

Q: How long have you been teaching?

A: This is my 9th year teaching.

 

Q: What is the most rewarding thing about being a teacher?

A: I guess it would be the relationships I develop with the kids. I know so many random facts about my students, and I use those facts to teach or to enforce discipline.
