Head, Brittney 
Hi! My name is Brittney Head and I am so excited and honored to be your child’s 1st grade teacher this year at Kelly Mill Elementary! GO COLTS!
I grew up in Forsyth County and graduated from Forsyth Central High School. I attended Piedmont College where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education and played collegiate fast pitch softball. I will be the pitching coach at North Forsyth High School for the 2015 season.
In my spare time, I love spending time with family and friends, shopping, painting, and playing slow pitch softball. An interesting fact about me is that I have an identical twin sister. She will also be teaching at Kelly Mill this year but in 2nd grade.
This year is going to be full of hands on learning and many new adventures. I look forward to getting to know you and your wonderful child.
I am so blessed to be able to do what I love and look forward to a year of fun and lots of learning.
