Teacher Spotlight: Mrs. Brummett

McKinzie Peterson, Writer

Mrs. Brummett is a teacher at DHS and has been teaching for 25 years now. She attended MSSU and received her bachelor’s degree. After she achieved that, she then moved on to Missouri State University in Springfield, MO. She has taught several classes over the years at Diamond, such as alternative education, 1st grade, 5th grade, 5th-8th Language Arts, elementary computer lab, ISS, and she was even a district risk coordinator for the Diamond. Her favorite part of being a teacher is getting to watch kids grow and mature into young adults and getting to be a small influence in their lives. When being outside of school, she enjoys hanging with friends and reading different genres of books. Since she has been apart of the community her whole life, she feels it’s home to her and states how she bleeds black and gold from how much pride she has within the district. Furthermore, she has a favorite quote that says, “don’t ask God to guide your footsteps if you’re not willing to move your feet.” Mrs. Brummett is currently teaching alternative education here at Diamond High School.
