Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Brittany Maness
Hi, my name is Coach Maness. I am the Physical Education teacher here at McClendon Elementary. This will be my first year here at Community ISD.
I was born and raised in Arlington, TX and graduated from Kennedale High School. I played sports throughout my entire childhood. I was fortunate enough to have received a Volleyball scholarship to Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, OK. Due to a sports injury, I made the decision to graduate early and get back to Texas to begin my journey working on my Alternative Teacher's Certification at Texas A&M Commerce.
My first teaching job was as a Kindergarten teacher in a small town west of Paris, TX called Roxton. Kindergarten was not the route I wanted to take as a teacher, but it was an opportunity I will forever be grateful for, because I believe life goes full circle and it has redirected me back to the elementary level. After leaving Roxton, I received an offer to be the Head Volleyball coach at Paris High School where I coached for 5 years. With much success at Paris, I decided that I really wanted to focus my coaching ability more on the fundamentals and skills and less on the X's and O's, so I decided to step down and take a position at the Middle School level. Sulphur Springs Middle school was next in line in this journey for me. I was beyond blessed to have gotten to work 4 years with an outstanding campus and staff as well as the students and athletes.
Coming to Community is definitely a God thing for my family. My husband was offered the Head Volleyball position mid summer. So after lots of prayer, we felt this would be a great move for our family. Community has such a "family" based philsophy. I have noticed that these students needs is the top priority. I am beyond excited to be apart of this school district and getting the opportunity to get to know all the students at McClendon.
My husband and I currently have 1 child, Jacob, but have fostered 9 other children. So in total, we have 10 sons and counting. While most have left our home, they will always be considered a part of our family and we know God has his reigns on their life just as he does for all the young students that will become apart of my life here at Community ISD.
I am looking forward to a great year and new experiences here at Community!
