My name is Brent Wilburn, and this is my sixth year as a teacher, but it’s my first at Paris High School! My previous 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 Pre-AP English 3, English 3, and Practical Writing.
I am originally from Mississippi, but I came 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 am married, and we have two kids – a 5-year-old and a 1-year-old.
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 .
