My name is Brent Wilburn, and this 2023/24 school year marks my 10th as a teacher and my fifth at Paris High School. My first five years were spent as a seventh-grade English teacher at Paris Junior High, which included a Teacher of the Year award for the 2017-18 school year. This year, I am teaching AP English Language & Composition and AP English Literature & Composition.
I am originally from Mississippi, but I moved to Paris in 2008 and spent six years as a sports reporter and sports editor at The Paris News. In the fall of 2013, I decided to make a career change and enrolled in the alternative certification program at Texas A&M University-Commerce. I'm excited about teaching my students, and I hope my "real world" experience continues to assist me as I teach.
I'm happy to be at Paris High School, and my goal is to help my students in any way I can. Feel free to contact me with any concerns or questions. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org .
