Ms. Brittany Garvey
Hello, Timber Wolves! My name is Brittany Garvey and I am excited to meet all of you. This will be my sixth year teaching at Trailside Middle School. I am also the science subject area lead teacher at Trailside.
I grew up in Brookfield, Connecticut and moved down to Virginia a few years ago. I attended the University of Pittsburgh for my Bachelors in Natural Sciences with a focus in Biology, and the University of Virginia for my Masters in Teaching Secondary Science.
There is nothing more rewarding for me as a teacher than when my students are all engaged in their work and collaborating together with a purpose. I am excited to create these opportunities for my students to not only understand life science this year, but to practice these important skills to create lifelong learners.
Outside of school, I love to spend time dancing, singing, and watching any sports game that is on. I have been dancing my whole life and was a dance minor at The University of Pittsburgh where I choreographed many pieces during my time there. This summer I got engaged and am looking forward to planning a wedding for the end of June after school is over!
I love to keep things interesting in science class and am always looking for something new to bring to the classroom. I have some of the fondest memories from my time as a middle schooler in science class, and hope to create those lasting memories for my own students.
This is going to be a wonderful year and I can't wait to meet all of you!
