Miss Briana Owens
Hello! Welcome to 5th grade at Patriots. I am thrilled to be teaching reading and social studies this year. I will be pairing up with Mrs. Connarn, who will be providing math and science instruction. This will be my 3rd year teaching at Patriots--all in 5th grade. I graduated from UNC Charlotte (go niners!) in May of 2018 with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Urban Youth and Communities. I am currently working towards earning my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction in TESL. I look forward to working with your child this year.
A little bit about myself! I am from Dunn, NC which is a very small town about three hours east, but I am happy to now call Charlotte my home. In my spare time I enjoy reading, hiking and spending time with my friends...who all happen to be teachers as well (we travel in packs)! When I'm not at school, you can find me at Carowinds, shopping at Target or hanging out with my cat, Phoebe.
I also love to travel. I studied abroad for 3 weeks in South Africa during the summer of 2016 where I went paragliding and shark cage diving. I have a trip planned this summer to Krakow, Prague and Budapest! It is my dream to someday teach abroad.
I know that this year will look different, but please contact me with any questions or concerns. Open communication is very important to a successful school year. I am looking forward to seeing what this year brings!
