Mrs. Budd



I am Briana Budd. I am excited to be starting my 2nd year at Normal Park as the 7th grade science teacher. Last year I taught 8th grade. Before Normal Park I taught at Lakes High School in Lake Villa, IL. I taught AP Environmental Science, Biotechnology, and Anatomy. I graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with my degree in Geology.

My husband Billy and I moved to Chattanooga last year mainly because of our shared interest in rock climbing. My husband is a math teacher at Howard High School. We enjoy spending most of our time outdoors with our dogs Bomani and Moose.

I am very excited to teach 7th grade! We start the year off with Geology. Many people think rocks are boring, but I love them. We then learn about Force and Motion. Second semester we will dive into Biology and learn about cells and heredity.


I love nerdy science jokes and memes, send them my way if you encounter them!
