Degrees and Certifications:
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.
