Dana Brainerd

My name is Dana Brainerd, and I am excited to be teaching 5th grade this year at Battle!  It is going to be a wonderful year! 

I was born in Memphis, but grew up in Alabama.  I attended college in Arkansas and raised my son there.  I moved to Chattanooga six years ago.  I am married to Gary Brainerd and together we have three children (all grown and out on their own).  We have a sweet dog, Hendrix.  Some things I enjoy are cooking, going to hear live music, planting flowers and walking Hendrix. I am an avid reader and have a huge classroom library.  

I have been teaching for 27 years.  This year I will be teaching Literacy (reading and writing).  We have four incredible units of study:  Stories of Human Rights, Biodiversity of the Rainforest, Athlete Leaders of Social Change, and Natural Disasters.
