Mr. Brook Chapman
My name is Brook Chapman, and I am a 5th grade teacher here at Harbison West Elementary. I just completed my first year as a teacher. Last I taught 5th grade at HWES and it was an amazing year. I am 25 years old. I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelors Degree in Education. I grew up in Greenville, South Carolina. I love the sport of football. I also enjoy reading mysteries books as well watching a good mystery TV show. My favorite is photography.
I am a firm believer that education can change the circumstance of any students’ life no matter what it may currently be. I decided I wanted to be a teacher during my sophomore year of college because I felt my current major wouldn’t afford me the opportunity to be a change agent in the world. Throughout my time as an intern, I learned that teaching is definitely my strong suit, and my students help remain me of that at the end of every day. Here at Harbison West I teach math and science, which is very ironic seeing how I did not enjoy either subject as a student in school. However, that simple fact is proof you can be good at things you may not necessarily like. I use that principle in my teaching to show students the power of determination.
