Ms. Brandi Morrison

I am so excited to join Shepherd ISD and to be apart of this wonderful school family. I have taught fourth and fifth grade, both of which has been amazing! I have an adorable son Jeremiah who is not quite old enough for school yet but will soon be a mighty PIRATE.
 
I grew up in Shepherd and graduated from Shepherd High School. I am a very proud Lady Pirate! After high school, I attended Stephen F. Austin State University, GO JACKS! Following SFA, I began my teaching career in Dallas, TX. I am the middle of three children. I have an older sister and a younger brother. I am also a very proud aunt of three amazing nieces. My mom lives in Shepherd and is the very best mom and grandma a.k.a. Nana, around!
 
I have a huge love for sports, especially college football, college basketball, and of course "America's Team" , THE DALLAS COWBOYS!
