My name is Brooke Evans, and I am looking forward to having you in class this year. I am married to Buddy and have three children – Oaklee, Tanner, and Wiley. All three will be with me at Faith this year. I have lived almost all my life in Brownsville, TN pretty much in the same spot out in the country. I graduated from Mississippi State University with a degree in Secondary Education. I taught science at Haywood High School for 3 years and also taught science and algebra at Faith before becoming a stay at home mom. My family and I are active members of Woodland Baptist Church in Brownsville, TN. We also have a puppy, Muffin, and two new kittens, Rex and Dino. We enjoy being outside every chance we get. I love teaching and especially love working with middle and high school students. I am new to teaching keyboarding, but I use a computer quite often. I know we will enjoy learning together this year. Come the first day with your laptop, charger, student book, binder and quiz/test booklet. We will get ourselves arranged and begin learning to type. See you August 10!

Please make sure you can connect to WiFi. You also need a Google email account. This Google account can be the student’s personal account or a parent’s account. The student will need to know the username and password. Practice logging in to email and connecting to WiFi before the first day of class. Laptop needs to be charged before class. Chargers are for backup only.
