Briarwood Elementary is our “Dream School” because of the combined efforts of our teachers, staff, students, parents, school district, PTA, and community. TEAM Briarwood is a family and we work together to provide a world class education for ALL our students.

On Thursday, January 5, 2017 we opened the New Briarwood, our Dream School.  It was an amazing day full of excitement and eagerness for all who entered. You can still feel that positive energy on a daily basis throughout the school. We now have a physical building that matches our innovative teaching practices, which allow us to dream big and do things we could not do before. From the collaborative learning areas in the hallways to the technology integration throughout the building we truly have a state of the art learning facility that supports our students and prepares them for their future.

On a daily basis, you will see students and staff members collaborating throughout the building working on projects, presentations, and class assignments.  Having the opportunity to interact with our enthusiastic students and work with a school community that is committed to doing what is best for kids on a daily basis is a dream job. Working together, we have created a positive child-centered environment where students excel academically and socially. It is an honor and privilege to serve this great community, and I am looking forward to building on our success as we continue to improve the Briarwood experience for our students so they can achieve more! It is a beautiful day to be a Bulldog!
