Welcome to my Classroom
Brian McKeown

 Hello and thank you for visiting my school website.   I have been teaching at Erwin High School since the 2012-2013 school year.  I have lived in the area since 2000 when I moved to Asheville from Chicago, Illinois.  I enjoy reading and spending as much time outdoors with my wife and two sons as possible.  

The classes I teach are available through Google Classroom and Canvas.  I hope to keep you and your child informed about upcoming events and due dates through the website, so please check there often.    I have taught Leadership, World History, American History I, American History II, Civics and Economics and AP Psychology in my time here at Erwin High School.  

My philosophy on education is that students need to be pushed to their highest potential.  I keep very high expectations for my students because I know they are capable of greatness.  I attempt to teach my students not only the content as assigned by the North Carolina Department of Instruction, but also the lessons of compassion, integrity, and excellence.  It is my hope that a young person leaves my classroom proud of the academic and personal growth they achieved in my classroom.  If you ever have any questions about your student's progress in my course please feel free to email or call me.
