Mrs. Gretchen Brennan
Hi, My name is Gretchen Brennan! I am so honored to be your child's third grade teacher for the 2020-2021 school year. I am thrilled to be entering my third year teaching. This will be my first year at Hughes Elementary as well as my first year as a third grade teacher. Before coming to Hughes, I taught first grade for two years. I received my Bachelor of Science in Psychology from The University of Alabama – ROLL TIDE – in May 2016. I received my Masters of Art in Teaching from the University of the Cumberlands in May 2018 for Elementary Education. I began my Specialist Degree in Reading Education in May 2019 through Georgia Southern University and will graduate December 2020. I am certified in both Elementary Education and Special Education. Outside of school, I also teach English online to international children through a company called VIPKid.
I have been married to my husband, Brian, since May 2018, who is a project manager at Brasfield & Gorrie. Together, have two precious fur babies, Gracie and Bo Brennan. We enjoy traveling, trying new restaurants, and spending time with family!
It is my goal to create a safe, engaging, and supportive learning environment where children are able to take risks to explore their educational potential to become lifelong learners. I fully believe in including all families and our surrounding community inside of our classroom. One of my favorite aspects of being a teacher is being able to form relationships with those around me to better our learners. If you ever need anything, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am always here for you and your family! It will be a fantastic year in third grade!
