Mrs. Phyllis Brunson

I am a Florida native who grew up primarily in Orlando, Florida.  I graduated from Valencia Community College and then married.  I later went back to school in Charleston, SC, where I graduated from The Medical University of SC.  My degree was a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene.  I am a Registered Dental Hygienist and have been for 33 years.  I went back to school in 2009 to get my teaching credentials.  I did this at the College of Central Florida through the Educator Preparatory Institute.  I was a paraprofessional at Lake Weir High School and then I taught Earth Science and Chemistry at Francis Marion Military Academy, and Earth Science, Biology, and Economics at Crossroads Academy.  This is my fifth year at Horizon Academy where I have taught Earth Science, Life Science and Physical Science.  I am a NG-CARPD instructor and reading is stressed in my classroom.  This year I will be teaching Earth Science with an emphasis on Content Reading instruction in my classes.  

The fastest way to contact me is through my email address at I answer email very quickly even on weekends or to use Remind where you will be able to text with me privately about your student.  Communication is key and  I am always happy to help.
