Degrees and Certifications:

Brittni Willis

Hey, Friends!!  I am not actually a Jacksonville native, but Jacksonville has been where I have called home for the last 13 years. 
I graduated from Southwest High School (Go Stallions!) before going on to Coastal Carolina Community College for my Associate's of Arts degree and finally to University of North Carolina Wilmington to obtain my Bachelor's of Arts in Elementary Education.  

This is my third year teaching and I could not be more excited about teaching at Southwest Elementary School!  I was extremely lucky to spend time with the staff and students here throughout my journey at UNCW and fell in love with the school and atmosphere. Most of my time was spent in first grade with some amazing teachers!!
I am ecstatic to be teaching another year in one of my favorite grades, first grade!!

When I am not at school, I am spending time with my family.  My husband, Alex, and I have two minis, Riley and baby Rowan.  Riley will be seven this year and likes to keep me on my toes! He will also be in first grade with me!
Baby Rowan was born in April of 2022.  He is my chunky little snuggler!

I also have three dogs, Zoe is the oldest at 10 years old, she is the smallest of them all (she is a chiahuahua mix).  Baloo is 5 years old and is our largest Great Dane.  Finally, Akela is our Great Dane puppy, at 3 years old!
