Hello, my name is Brandon Runyon and I am the Advanced Placement Literature, British Literature, and Shakespearean Literature teacher here at Berean Christian. Prior to coming to Berean Christian, I attended Azusa Pacific University where I pursued a degree in English with an emphasis in teaching. I spent a fair amount of time teaching in public high schools in the Azusa area before coming back to the Bay Area. I was blessed to teach for two years at Miramonte High School, before the Lord called me to Berean Christian. I have been teaching here since 2012, and have loved everyday of it. During my first year at Berean Christian, I completed my Masters degree in education.

Literature is my passion, and I love passing on the love of reading, analysis, and understanding the complexities of the English language onto the students. My classes are very much organized in a manner that will best suit them for their time beyond High School, preparing them for their collegiate careers. Moreover, I strongly believe that learning does not end at the classroom door, and I work to ensure that the students are extending that learning experience beyond the school. For example, the Shakespearean literature course has a trip to Ashland, Oregon to attend the Shakespeare Festival, the AP courses have writing workshops off campus, and I lead a trip abroad every other year, in order to bring to life the material covered in my classes.

If you have any questions for me about my courses please feel free to email me, as email is the best way to contact me! If you would like me to call you, please email your phone number and a window of time in which you are available.

Thank you,
Brandon Runyon
