Teacher Spotlight: Mrs. Brielle Farrow, From Central Alumnus to Chemistry Teacher

Here at Central, we love to say, “We’re Pounders for life!” For Mrs. Brielle Farrow, that phrase definitely rings true.

Mrs. Farrow was a student here at Central, and is now a chemistry teacher here as well. She was a student from 2001 to 2005, and has been a teacher since 2009. For her first five years, Farrow taught chemistry only, but, over the last three years, she has also taken over the role as cheerleading coach. Farrow loves her job and is so glad she was able to stay connected to the Pounder family through teaching.

“I loved high school, which might be why I came back. I never really planned to be a teacher, but I know now that it was definitely God’s plan for me. My students are the best, and I love seeing them learn new things,” shared Farrow.

In Farrow’s high school days, she was cheerleading at every wrestling, football, and basketball game, which is why she is perfect for the job of coach. As cheerleading coach, she is in charge of planning and executing all of the school’s pep rallies. Luckily, she was also part of student council and leadership in high school, so she already knows how the planning process works.

“[Mrs. Farrow] has high expectations for her students, but is more relatable than most teachers I have because she is so young,” remarked Lacy Mckinney, a sophomore Honors Chemistry student of Farrow’s. “She understands more about our generation and culture than the older teachers. It makes her approachable.”

Farrow attended college at Young Harris College, Chattanooga State Community College, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and Lee University. She wanted to stay close to Chattanooga, her family, and her friends. In her life outside of school, she loves to hang out with these friends and her family.

“Family is everything to me, I would be nothing without them. No matter what, I know they will be by my side,” admitted Farrow.

With all she does for the school, it is obvious that Mrs. Farrow has purple and gold running through her veins and will be a proud Central Pounder for life!

    Nelle Ward- I have known Brielle for a long time. She was a fromer student of mine at Harrison Elem. Watching her grow and mature has been memorable. My daughter and her were good friends growing up. I have heard some good things about her teaching. Who would have ever known, Brielle teaching school. Proud of her and proud to know her. Great job, Brielle!
