Mrs. Brianna Owen



I have taught Special Education for 8 years and each year I fall more in love with my calling. I joined the DES family 4 years ago and I am excited to begin my fifth year at DES for the 2021-2022 school year.  I once heard a quote that stuck with me, “Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.”  I don’t feel like I have worked the past eight years. I live for those “lightbulb moments” when my students master goals, concepts, and life skills. I enjoy getting to collaborate with teachers in order to provide the most conducive learning environment for all students. I believe that every child has the ability to learn and not every child learns the same way. In my free time I have a 5 year old boy who keeps me busy. We enjoy going to the park, playing outside, eating ice cream, and trips to target.
