Mrs. Anne Easler has been teaching 3rd grade at Briarwood for six years. She has over thirty-seven years of teaching experience. She attended Georgia Southern University and earned her teaching degree at Augusta College and State University.
During the 2010-2011 school year, Mrs. Easler and her third grade class wrote letters of encouragement to Chaplain Jeremy Johnson and his battalion stationed in Afghanistan. Chaplain Johnson visited today and presented a certificate to Mrs. Easler and the class. The certificate thanked them “for your prayerful support, faithful encouragement, and gracious gifts to the soldiers of the Task Force Red Currahee. Your actions greatly assisted 1st Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne (AASLT), in conducting combat operations in West Patika, Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom X-XI.” After thanking the students, Chaplain Johnson encouraged them to move forward and learn from their mistakes.
Mrs. Easler’s third grade class visited Stone Mountain on September 12, 2008. Upon arrival at Stone Mountain, the students and adults took the Summit Skyride. This high-speed Swiss cable car carried everyone more than 825 feet to the top of Stone Mountain. Although it was foggy, everyone enjoyed walking and exploring on the mountain top. After returning to the base of the mountain, the students visited the Antebellum Farmyard where they enjoyed petting the sheep and goats. Next everyone enjoyed a picnic lunch at the Georgia Pavilion. As lunch settled, the students climbed aboard the Scenic Railroad train with a full size locomotive from the 1940s. Everyone enjoyed the open-air cars that took them on a five-mile excursion around the mountain. A favorite of most students was the 4-D movie Tall Tales of the South. The students wore special glasses to watch the 3D movie and special theater effects brought it to life. Before departing for Briarwood, the students were able to shop in the Crossroads area.[Gallery not found]
