Briana learned that she wanted to be a teacher while in Special Education in the 6th grade. This ultimately lead to her pursuing a teaching program offered by the local BOCES, which allowed her to intern in a middle school classroom two days a week when she was 17. Briana then went to college, where she began her journey by taking both English and Education courses. She is excited to make a difference in students’ lives, help build their confidence, and cultivate their love for education!
