Welcome and Hello! My name is Kelly Brown and I'm very excited to work with our students here at Dominion Trail Elementary School. I graduated from the University of Southern Maine with a B.S. in Business Administration and a M. Ed. In Literacy with a concentration in ESL. I began teaching in 1999 and have taught English language learners since 2004. My teaching philosophy focuses on a comfortable, safe, patient, and compassionate learning environment to provide optimal academic and social success for my students. I believe all students have strengths upon which more learning can be built upon. When learning is safe, fun, and authentic, goals and dreams can be reached!
