Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Brian Neill


My name is Mr. Neill, and I am excited to be your teacher for Literature or Dramatic Writing for Stage, TV, or Film this year! 


This will be my first year at John S. Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School, and I am thrilled and honored to be here. 


I have taught in Richmond County schools for more than 12 years. Before teaching, I worked at a variety of newspapers as a reporter and editor. I wrote stories about everything from crime and politics, to education and business. 

I have a bachelor's of English from the University of South Florida, and a master's in Curriculum and Instruction from Augusta University.


In my spare time, I play guitar, garden, travel, and spend time with my wife, Stacey, and two sons, Cooper and Ian, who will both be attending Davidson this year. 


Let's have a great year!
