Middle School – Anne Brown
“Love is patient, love is kind” is one of Mrs. Brown’s very favorite quotes. This quote inspires her when she is feeling down and how she tries to live her life. Ann Brown has been teaching 30 years, retired from public school and got bored because teaching is her passion. She decided to go back into it. The Lord lead her to Christ the King because she was offered many jobs but decided to come teach here and has not regretted it. She loves her job and the students she teaches. She loves to make learning fun and tries to use laughter in her classes. She is a project-based teacher, and if you come into her class you might see projects going on, group work, or students working with a partner.
