Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Brea Colagross
I am originally from Columbus, Georgia, but I have lived in the Shoals for the past 16 years. I have a BBA in Marketing and a Master’s degree in Business Education from the University of North Alabama. I have been teaching for 13 years, 1 year at Covenant Christian School and the past 12 years at Sheffield Junior High and High School. I have taught a variety of subjects, including AP Computer Science Principles, Multimedia Publications, Career Prep, Computer Essentials, Algebra, Trigonometry, Dance, and Drama. I am a Google Certified Educator, as well as a member of the Association for Career and Technical Education and Computer Science Teachers of Alabama. In September, I had the privilege of speaking at RHS at the A+ College Ready Statewide Celebration. In my spare time, I teach dance at My Girls Dance Center in Moulton. I have also been involved with the Miss America Organization for over twenty years, through judging pageants and choreographing for contestants. My family and I are active members of Highland Baptist Church, where I enjoy teaching AWANA and Vacation Bible School and serving on our Children's IMPACT Ministry team. I have been married to my husband, John, for 16 years, and we have two children, Ella and Ethan. We enjoy traveling, spending time outside, and countless games of UNO.
I am so excited to be teaching Computer Science at RHS this year! Who knows what our students will create that will change the world? I can’t imagine a career in the future that won’t use technology and CS in some way, so this course is very important, and it is so much fun!
