My name is Brooke Oliver. This is my third year teaching at Brinson Memorial as a 2nd grade teacher. I graduated in May 2016 from Gwynedd Mercy University with a dual degree in Early Childhood Elementary School PreK-4th and Speical Education K-8th. I have always wanted to be a teacher since as long as I can remember. When I used to play the game "LIFE", I remember how I desperately wanted my occupation to be a teacher! I wanted nothing more than to be able to have my own classroom full of little kids. Now I have fulfilled my dream of teaching and I love everyday of it.
I am originally from Pennsburg, Pennsylvania. I moved to North Carolina in August 2016 to come teach at Brinson. I had to leave my family in Pennsylvania when I came here. I have two loving parents who have always supported me. I have an older sister named Jordan and a younger step-sister named Kayla. I have a wonderful niece named Murphy who turned two in July and will have a wonderful nephew come January 2019 (first boy in the family!!). I also left my two beloved dogs back in Pennsylvania, Chewbaca and Ruben. Both of my dogs are rescue dog and both are 8 years old. Chewbaca is a Havanese Poodle mix and Ruben is a Pitbull Doberman mix.
In my spare time, I love to do many different things. My all time favorite passtime activity is to nap! When I am not napping, you can find me reading a book or possibly attempting some sort of craft. I also enjoy being outside as well. I like to run outside around my development and I also play on an adult softball team. I also love the beach (total perk of moving to New Bern)!
I am looking forward to another amazing year at Brinson with another great group of students!
