Poole SY23-24


Hello! My name is Brandon Poole, and I am excited to be entering my fourth year at the Perry Career Academy as a Social Studies teacher. I will be in lab #230 this year. I have been an educator for 21 years. My early childhood years were spent growing up in Riverdale and I moved to Lovejoy in 3rd grade. I graduated from Lovejoy High School in 1998. From 1998-2002, I attended the University of Georgia where I earned my bachelors’ degree in Social Studies Education. I began my teaching career in 2002 at Riverdale High School. I taught Social Studies at Riverdale High from 2002-2006 while simultaneously earning a masters’ degree in Social Studies Education from Georgia State University. In 2006, I moved to Griffin High School where I taught from 2006-2019. During my years as an educator, I have taught World Geography, American Government, World History, United States History, Psychology, and Economics. I have experience working with students in the traditional and collaborative settings as well as with honors and advanced placement students. I look forward to working with all of the students, parents, and families at Perry this year!
