Fun, crazy, chaotic, with lots of learning is how Rochelle Briggs has characterized her first year of teaching at the school. Briggs loves her many students that make teaching here enjoyable.

Before teaching here, she taught at Faithful Schooling in Lumberton. Briggs was told what a great school district LCM was and how she should apply for a job at the high school. She has taken on the role of teaching Child Development, Money Matters, and Ready, Set, Teach.

“I love kids – the little, as well as the big,” Briggs said. “I love to teach and watch as they grasp concepts -to watch that “light bulb” moment happen is really fulfilling. My classes offer lots of real life lessons to help a student grasp those concepts and actually grow. By teaching this subject, it makes me feel like I am actually helping to shape the future in some small way.”

Briggs said she doesn’t have any plans on leaving in the future. According to Briggs, if she wasn’t a teacher, she would either want to own a daycare or be a nurse.

“I knew even before I had kids that I wanted children and to have a job that would enable me to spend as much time with them as possible,” Briggs said. “And luckily teaching offers that.”

Briggs tries to engage her students and use relevant information. She said that if technology is used appropriately, it can magnify how students learn and help teachers to inspire, motivate, and teach their students.

“I hope they learn the subject matter, but more importantly I hope they learn that they have value,”Briggs said. “I try to make them feel important and special, because they really need it during these years.”
