I am Briana Budd. I am excited to be starting my 5th year at Normal Park as the 7th grade science teacher. 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 mainly because of our shared interest in rock climbing. My husband is the E-Lab Specialist at Brainerd High School. We have a daughter named Oriana (Ori), she is 1 year old. We enjoy spending most of our time outdoors with our family and dogs Bomani and Moose!
I love teaching 7th grade science! We will start the year with a bang (Chemistry) and then dive into Life Science. Students will engage in many hands on labs and activities.
I love nerdy science jokes and memes, send them my way if you encounter them!
