Familiar Face to Teach New Topic

The Cider Press is introducing our new staff with a fun Q&A this year. Starting off the interviews is Mr. Brant, one of our new full-time teachers this year at MuHS. Although he may have been in the building last year, he is now officially an upper classmen Forensics teacher, and a freshman science teacher.

Q: Do you have any past teaching experience?

A (Brant): “I started as a one day sub, then I went to two day assignments which eventually turned into week long assignments. I then took over for Mr. Stiles while he was on medical leave, after (that) I got hired on as a full-time co-teacher. This year I’m a full time teacher and I have my own classroom.”

Q: What are your emotions going forth as being a full time teacher?

A (Brant): “Honestly, a little bit of everything. I’m so excited I have my own classroom, but I’m kind of learning everything on the fly. It’s a first year of teaching and first year of my own classroom, so it’s like I’m in survival mode. I am starting to get my barrings, and learning how I want my class to function.”

Q: If you could teach a different subject, what would it be?

A (Brant): “I’m going with science, I’m most definitely a science guy. I was a social science guy in high school, but I also have a very science orientated mind. Because of that, I’m very happy I’m teaching science this year.”

Q: Did you do any fun summer activities this year?

A (Brant): “This summer I was basically trying to prep for this school year. I did go on a mini vacation and I took my daughter, who is six, to her first concert. We went to see Noah Gallagher, down in Merryweather. I read, watched some history channels, and hiked. I love to hike in my free time.”
