Mrs. Briana Dehler
My name is Briana Dehler, and I am so excited to be a part of the Caldwell Stars family! I will be teaching 6th and 7th grade English Language Arts and Reading this year.
The 2020-21 school year will be my first year at Caldwell, but my 4th year teaching. Previously I taught 7th grade Mathematics in Tennessee after graduating with my Bachelor's in Interdisciplinary Studies with a Generalist 4-8 Teaching Certification from The University of Texas - San Antonio. I have Generalist 4-8 Certification, TN Middle Grades 4-8 Certification, and will be obtaining my ESL EC-12 certification this summer.
If you're looking for a quiet classroom with strict structure and rigid rules, then my classroom is NOT the place for you. I value student-led, hands on learning that promotes student agency and fosters intrinsic motivation. In my ELAR classroom, students will develop skills of close reading and literary analysis, through reading a varied selection of stories, plays, and poems, many of which highlight exemplary virtues. It's my goal that my students will come to appreciate the writer's craft as they consider the feelings, thoughts, and ideas of characters, and make connections between literature and life.
