6th Grade ELA Teacher

What happens to a dream deferred?
      Does it dry up
      like a raisin in the sun?
      Or fester like a sore—
      And then run?
      Does it stink like rotten meat?
      Or crust and sugar over—
      like a syrupy sweet?
      Maybe it just sags
      like a heavy load.
      Or does it explode?

Greetings parents and students,

My name is Beverly Brittmon, and I am the 6th grade English Language Arts Teacher. I was born and raised in Memphis, TN, where I still reside. I obtained a B. A. in English from the University of Memphis in 2002, and I earned my M. A. in English from the  University of Memphis, in 2006.  I began my teaching career as a graduate assistant at the University of Memphis in 2004. Later, I obtained a position as a part-time English instructor at the University of Memphis, and  in 2011, I obtained a full-time position as an English instructor at Southwest Tennessee Community College. On a personal note,  I enjoy writing Christian poetry, and I love listening to gospel music. My favorite color is pink. I am looking forward to a wonderful and successful school year.

Parent Corner

It is my pleasure to teach your children. Please make sure that your child keeps the camera on and sits up attentively during class. Also, the students need to mute their mics, and they should have on the school shirt. Additionally, they should be prepared with paper and pencil to take notes. Please encourage them to be respectful and participate. Thank you.

Currently, we are working on standard RL 6.1: Cite textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as drawing inferences from the text.
