name is Deborah Brigman and I serve Advanced Studies Magnet at West Ashley as the
facilitator of academically gifted and talented students. Eligible 6th,7th, and 8th graders are served
one period daily Monday through Friday on a rotating A-Day/B-Day schedule. I have over 30 years of teaching
experience, all in middle schools of the West Ashley area of Charleston
County School District. I am proud to have been selected by my
colleagues as Teacher of the Year at 3 different middle schools, also
having been honored as District Teacher of the Year. I challenge my
students on a daily basis to excel in all areas of their lives.
Achievements in various areas of competition is an essential goal of my
program. Examples of these are Odyssey of the Mind, Public Speaking,
Creative Writing, and the National Spelling Bee.
I am available for conferences after school by appointment, Monday-Thursday. I am available for tutorial help, also by appointment only, to be arranged by teacher/parent/students.
