Welcome to Mrs. Bradner's homepage!
Welcome to Mrs. Bradner's 7th grade Social Studies Class! I have been teaching MANY years (over 39) and I am still here! I graduated from UNC (Go Heels!) in 1977. My husband (retired from Home Depot & and ECU man) and I have been married for over 42 years and we have two married sons... I am still waiting for grandchildren! (I just have grand-dogs!)
I have taught for over 39 years and grades K- 8 in these subjects: reading, language arts, gifted students, social studies, life skills, and even sixth grade math! I LOVE teaching and really enjoy working with students and watching those "light bulbs" turn on over their heads.
I have taught at JMS for 8 years and am currently teaching 7th grade social studies which is World History from 1700- present day. We have 8 units in our social studies curriculum as well as focusing on current events. We watch CNN10 (Student News) everyday in class and students are required to watch 10-15 minutes of national or world news four nights a week. We have a lot of class discussions on what is going on in this world!
