About Mrs. Adams

Brienne Adams

My name is Brienne Adams, and I am your 8th grade Language Arts and 6th grade Social Studies teacher! I graduated from UNC Chapel Hill with my Middle Grades Education Degree in 2005.  With it, I became certified to teach 6th-9th grade Language Arts and Social Studies. I obtained my K-5th licensure in 2011.  This is my 8th year at River Mill Academy and I love it!

Outside of school, I enjoy reading and writing poetry.  In my spare time, I submit my poetry to magazines for potential publication.  Some of the magazines my work has appeared in are: The Storyteller Magazine, The Innisfree Poetry Journal, The Lyric, and Beyond Centauri. I also enjoy singing, playing disc golf, Zumba, and Body Combat Kickboxing. 

I have a wonderful husband and two lovable doggy friends named Koda and Arlo. Koda is a lab/hound mix and Arlo is a terrier mix.  We adopted both from Paws4Ever. They love going disc-golfing and playing with tennis balls in the yard.

Teaching is a profession I love.  I enjoy discovering children’s passions and strengths and helping to nurture them.  Over the years, I have learned that I not only teach students, they also teach me!
