Ms. Brittany Cummings

Hi folks!

I am a passionate and innovative educator with fifteen years of experience in education here in Kansas, in Texas, and abroad in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.  I am excited about the opportunity to support your student in their journey through literature.  I strive to create an atmosphere that fosters meaningful growth and helps all students feel equipped to learn and participate in our coursework.  

At Free State, I'll be teaching 21st Century Literature and 9th Grade English.  Within my syllabus, you'll find everything you need for our course including my contact information and plan period, our Google Classroom code, our norms/expectations for the course, our units of focus, my policy on food, drink, and technology in the classroom, as well as my grading policy.  Please feel free to email me with any questions you might have regarding this or our work in class.

Lastly, I've included a link to my wellness page for anyone interested or in need of some self-care strategies to support their success throughout the school year: Be Here Now.  A lot of hard work, research, and trial and error has gone into this page.  This is by no means a requirement for any class I teach at Free State, simply a resource for students, parents and guardians to utilize at their discretion.  


Thank you for your commitment to being the best version of you.


Have a beautiful day,

Ms. Brittany Cummings
