About Mr. Brian Herring
For those who do not know I grew up in this district just on the other side going to Saluda River Elementary, Northside Middle School, and Brookland-Cayce High School. After BC I was granted the privilege to attend Winthrop University were I majored in History, founded and became president of the Winthrop FCA, and enjoyed three straight Mens Basketball Championship seasons as the Student Assistant for the Winthrop Eagles under Coach Gregg Marshall. I then chased my dream of coaching at the University of Georgia were I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Coach Mark Richt, but also found out that some dreams aren’t what they seem. I left Athens moving home and taking a teaching/coaching job in a rural town. After two years and two schools I was not happy and moved home to the Lexington area. I worked one year as a Teacher’s Assistant at Busbee Middle, but then went after the sales world hoping to find better money. Two years later I was on pace to make over $100,000 in a year, but something was missing. I went into my manager and told him I was going back to teaching.
I began to substitute teach and a couple weeks later was offered a chance to come to Fulmer and take over for one of my Elementary Principals who was teaching 6th Grade World History. Now in my 7th year at Fulmer I am teaching World History, I am the Huddle Coach of the first ever Fulmer FCA, I am coaching the Fulmer Boys Basketball Team with my dad, and my administration has not pushed me to do anything but become the best educator I can be and to assure all my students learn.
I am very excited about this year, and look forward to working with all my students and their parents. One thing I want to point out is that I have very high expectations of my students. I am more concerned with their effort than anything else. Fulmer’s 6th grade World History scores have been at the top of the state for many years now, and we will not let that change this year. Please join me as we reach for and grasp the highest level of learning offered any place in SC. We might not have all the money of the big districts, but we can compete and set new standards in learning they can not because we have the expectations of our teachers and students that allow us to get there.
Teachers from other schools: if you have ideas I might can use or if you need something from me let me know. It takes a village to raise a child: it takes everyone to educate a child. Coach Herring
