Brittany Franks is an English teacher at Oxford High School in Oxford, MS. After receiving her B.A. in English Education from The University of Mississippi, she began teaching freshman English at Tupelo High School. A year later she found herself moving across campus to teach sophomores, and it stuck. Through more years of teaching, a new city, and a new school, her 10th graders have remained. In 2017, she became a National Board Certified Teacher, and with that newfound confidence (or same old craziness), she decided to take on the implementation of a writing center at Oxford High School after attending a session on writing center pedagogue at TCW 2017. The Writer’s Block was born soon after. Now, her spare time is devoted to convincing OHS’s students of all levels to sit down and have a conversation about writing - even if she has to bribe them with cookies.
