Welcome to my first grade class!
My name is Brandee Huddleston, and I was born in Jamaica. My parents moved the family to the United states when I was 3 years old. We lived in Dallas for a bit, before my parents made one last move to Houston, and eventually settled in as Fort Bend residents. I graduated from Kempner High School, and went to college on a full academic scholarship to Prairie View A&M University. I continued my education and graduated from Lamar University where I got my degree in Applied Arts and Sciences with Dean’s List recognition.
I live in Richmond, Texas with my husband, whom I met as a freshman in high school. Go Kempner Cougars! We have two wonderful daughters, Courtney and Phoenix. Spending time with my family means everything to me. In my spare time I love studying different languages, yoga, dancing, learning, and listening to music. Last but certainly not least, I love to travel domestically and abroad. I’ve had the good fortune of being able to visit 11 different countries as well as several states in the U.S. No two experiences in my ongoing travels have been the same. As a result, I have a more broadened view of the world now, than I did in my youth. I try to incorporate this into my life and my classroom.
I have been fortunate enough to be a FBISD mainstay for most of my academic school years. To be able to teach in the same district that I was molded in, just brings everything full circle for me. I have been an educator in FBISD for 9 years, serving 7 of those years as a Scottie. The warm and caring community at Highlands Elementary makes teaching a pleasure. I am truly honored to serve in such a vital role to students. I look forward to helping students unlock their potential.
