Ms. Becca Brant

Welcome to my website!  I'm the new librarian at Sequoyah Schools.
My previous experience includes teaching Biology, Chemistry and Physical Science.
I attended Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, OK, and National Louis
University in Germany.  When I'm not at Sequoyah, I enjoy spending time with my two
boys, running, traveling, and of course reading.

My Favorite Books
Go Ask Alice, Anonymous
Fire on the Mountain, Edward Abbey
Charolette's Web, E.B. White
Sense and Sensibility, Jane Austen
The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death, Laurie Notaro
