Hello and welcome to another exciting year at Alton Elementary. My name is Ms. Brown and I will be your child's 5th grade Mathematics and Science teacher. I graduated from the University of New Orleans with a Bachelor of Arts in Education in 2001. I also graduated from the University of Phoenix with a Masters of Arts in Education with a concentration in Teacher Leadership in 2014. I am currently entering my 17th year of teaching. I have 16 years of teaching experience and this is my 5th year teaching at Alton Elementary.
My mission as your child's teacher is to empower my students to become active learners, develop skills as life-long learners, critical thinkers and cooperative learners,challenge each student to reach their highest potential, encourage students to strive academically and behaviorally, be a conscious model of moral and ethical behavior, create a classroom with a positive and safe environment, respect each student as an individual, be fair and impartial when student behavior is in question, recognize self-discipline and good citizenship skills in myself and my students.
I look forward to a great year with the fifth grade students of Alton Elementary School.
