My name is Brittany Colquitt, and I teach 7th grade Social Studies. I grew up in Marietta, Georgia, and I graduated from Shiloh Hills Christian School in 2003. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Middle Grades Education with concentrations in Language Arts, Social Studies, and Reading from Kennesaw State University; my master’s degree in Middle Grades Education with an emphasis in Social Studies from the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!!!), and I am currently perusing my specialist’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Piedmont University.
This is my 14th year in education. My career began in the Etowah Zone at Chapman Intermediate School where I taught 6th grade Language Arts and Social Studies. During my time at Chapman, I earned my Gifted Endorsement and served as Language Arts Department Head, Team Leader, and co-sponsor for Student Council. Upon Chapman's closing in 2013, I continued my teaching career at E.T. Booth Middle School where I taught 7th grade Language Arts and Reading and served as the 7th grade Language Arts Liaison for two years before returning to teach my first love, Social Studies. I have been in the 7th grade social studies classroom for the last six years.
In my time at Booth, I have also had the opportunity to serve as Team Leader, co-sponsor for Junior Leadership, and I have also served as the 7th grade Social Studies PLC Facilitator. In my spare time, I enjoy spending quality time with my husband and three kids. I am looking forward to a great school year!
