• Welcome to Ms. Brailsford's
    Hello!  I am Ms. Brailsford and I am happy to have you visit my page.  Here is a little background on me.  This is my 23rd year of teaching.  I have taught elementary, middle, and high school students.  I love students of all ages, but I have to say that I love the middle school age the best.  I have taught in Miami, Florida; Sumter, SC; and of course, Greenwood.  My educational background is a BA in English from St. Thomas University (Miami), a MS in Specific Learning Disabilities from Nova-Southeastern University (Ft. Lauderdale), and a MEd in Educational Leadership & Administration from Winthrop University right here in SC.
    I have high expectations for all of my students, both academically and behaviorally.  I expect only the very best from them no matter what their abilities are.  It is important that they learn from me and each other as much as they can in both academics and behaviors.  This year I am blessed to teach Math (7th grade), ELA(7th grade), Social Studies (6th, 7th, and 8th grades), Enrichment (6th grade), and Advisory (6th grade).  Though I have a very full schedule I am never too busy to  help your child or you if the need arises.  You can contact me through the school at 941-5500 or through my school email brailsfordh@gwd50.org

    In order for your child to be successful at Brewer Middle School and in my classroom I have the following expectations:
    Classroom Expectations for Each Student -
    * come to class everyday;
    * be ready to learn as much as they can; 
    * be kind and respectful to one another and to adults;
    * remember to try their very best; and
    * to ask for help when they do not understand 
    Homework is simple - Spend 15 minutes a day reading.  Take what they have learned in class and apply it to the world around them.  Go on the Internet and look for more information about the current class discussions.  Please take time to share their findings with teacher and classmates.  Above all, never stop learning.
