Ms. Brittany Harrell

Subjects: 7th/8th ELA
Hello and Welcome to the 2021/2022 School Year!
I am Ms. Harrell and this is my second year teaching in Duplin County Schools. I've previously worked in Craven County Schools and at Coastal Carolina Community College in Jacksonville, NC. 
I grew up in Onslow County but my entire family is from the eastern part of Duplin County and I'm excited to get back to my roots here. I come from a family of teachers: my stepmother worked for Jones County Schools before retiring last year; my brother and cousin work for Onslow County Schools; and my sister just left Onslow County Schools for to teach at Cape Fear Community College. I guess you could say teaching is in my blood.
I enjoy spending my free time cooking meals with and for my very large family, watching musicals or cheesy romcoms on Netflix, and snuggling up with my furbaby, a calico Maine Coon named Delilah.
Some of my current favorites:
Color: Teal, followed by Purple.
Candy: Dark Chocolate, followed by Watermelon Sour Patch Kids.
Food: Enchiladas or Sesame Chicken, unless my grandma has made Chicken Pastry recently.
Drink: Iced Coffee with Non-dairy Vanilla Creamer and Splenda.
App: TikTok - I get why y'all love it so much. It's hilarious.
Video Game: Stardew Valley
