All About Ms. Briner
Hello! My name is Ms. Alisha Briner and I am going to be your fifth grade teacher this year. This is my sixth year teaching at NHE. I previously worked as a Title teacher, P.E. teacher and a long term sub in a number of different areas at S Ellen Jones Elementary School in New Albany. I taught 3rd grade at NHE for two years. I have coached 5th and 7th grade girls basketball at North Harrison for 3 years & JV softball for one year. I will be coaching JV girls basketball for my fourth year this upcoming season here at NH.
I went to school at Indiana University Southeast in New Albany, IN where I received my bachelors in Elementary Education. While attending IUS I was a member of the women's collegiate basketball team for four years. I grew up in Mitchell, Indiana where it was just my mom, dad and I. Although I am an only child, I refer to my very close life long friends as my brothers and sisters.
I have a 11 year old, all black cat named Oliver and a four year old white cat named Zoey who are my children (Yes, I'm one of those people who refer to their pets as children).
I love to travel and have been able to spend some time in our nations capital, Washington, D.C., "The Big Apple" New York City, Hawaii, California, and many other places. I hope to be able to share my experiences with my students to enhance their learning and their background knowledge of the world around them. I LOVE photography and will be sharing a lot of photos with my kids this year. I will also be taking a lot of pictures of my kids in class to share with parents.
I can't wait to learn and grow with you this year. I'm excited to get the school year started! If you ever need to contact me please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me at NHE. 812-347-2419
