About Mr. Eldridge



My name is Brandon Eldridge, and this is my third year at Central Magnet School. I have been teaching AP US History for the past nine years, which is my 14th year as an educator. I am married to Lindsey Eldridge, and we have two children, Carter and McKinsley. In April 2020, I was named Tennessee's recipient of the James Madison Memorial Fellowship. Congress established the James Madison Memorial Fellowship Foundation in 1986 to improve secondary school teaching about the United States Constitution. As part of the James Madison Fellowship Program, I attended a four-week Summer Institute on the Constitution held during the summer of 2021, in Washington, D.C. Recently, I was named a Teacher Fellow for the Tennessee Holocaust Commission as an advocate for Holocaust Education throughout the state of Tennessee.
