About Me

Hey y'all! I'm Briana Beverly and I am so happy you're here on my little space of the internet!

I was born and raised in Orlando, FL. After graduating in 2012 from the University of Central Florida with a Psychology degree, I began searching for an elementary school job, but nothing panned out. So, I continued working as a Pre-K assistant. One October morning, I got a call out of the blue for an interview for a teaching job I hadn't even applied for. Well, that's how it all started! I jumped into teaching second grade, having not majored in Education, not having a single classroom item to my name, and starting about 8 weeks into school. Phew! I fell in LOVE with my second graders, and my childhood dream of being a teacher came true!!
From Orlando, to Fort Myers, to Nashville - I have been blessed to teach at several schools in several cities. Currently, I'm so thrilled to take some time off from classroom teaching and focus on raising my babies. I have a 2 year old boy, Beckham, and another son on the way in June 2019! I definitely plan to be back in the classroom once my kids are a little older, but I'm loving this opportunity to be home with them right now.

Here's a little peek at my personal life! 
 My handsome and amazing husband of almost 7 years is a Physician Assistant at an Orthopedic clinic and hospital. We met at UCF through one of my roommates and the rest is history! He's handsome, funny, super smart, fun, and thoughtful. I think I'll keep him! ;)
This is our fur baby, Bowden! (Did I forget to tell you that my husband is a die-hard FSU fan?!) He's 6 years old, and he is just the cutest, sweetest, and funniest pup!!
Here's my little guy - back when he really was a little guy!!! Beckham is such a joy and LOVES learning already at 2 years old. There may be some fun preschool things in the works eventually as we spend our days together.
And lastly, a few of my favorite things: spending time with family and friends, football games (Go Lions!), country concerts, traveling, and the beach!
I also love chocolate, trivia nights, teacher talk, my kindle, Netflix, any and all movies, shopping, the color pink, and weekend getaways.
I hope to use this space to help teachers through some of the more difficult aspects of teaching - engaging students, differentiating instruction, and time management! I hope you'll look around and see what I've got for you. :)

  2. Okay, a few things:

    I also graduated with a Psych degree in 2012, but I did get my Master's in Education (you can't major in Edu at UTK). I got hired for a (1st grade) job in October (okay, the end of September, but had to sub until Oct.) for a job I didn't apply for also!!! It was crazy coming in after school had already started! I am obsessed with Parenthood (and chocolate), so sad it's over! :( I am a new wife and new puppy mom!

    Loved coming across your blog! :)
