Hello everyone! My name is Mrs. Courtney Brown and I am so excited to be a member of this fantastic first grade team. My educational background includes a B.A. in Sociology from Colorado State University and a Masters in Elementary Education from Shenandoah University. I am from Colorado, but I have lived in the Washington area for the past twenty years.
I have 4 children and 2 of them are students here at KWC this year. Laird is in 8th grade and Madison is in 6th grade at Harmony Middle School. My youngest children are twins, Pierce, and Audrey; they are in 4th grade. I am so lucky to have my family and work so closely connected. Mr. Brown is an airline pilot and flies all over the world; sometimes we all go with him! I have a silly dog named Reno. I talk about my family and our pets a lot when I teach; they are a very important to me. I use our experiences when I write and I make connections to them when I read. I will teach you how to do this with your family; it makes leaning fun and easy because we know our families so well. We will practice a lot so I want to get to know you very well. I want to hear your funny stories, your favorite things to do and see and ALL about your family and pets!
My hobbies include reading, sports, hiking, cooking and bike riding. I love animals and enjoy learning and teaching about them. My favorite foods are cheeseburgers, pizza, and crab and I LOVE ice cream; but usually I must eat the healthy stuff like nuts, fruits, and vegetables. I love the colors blue and purple, but of course green and yellow are fun to wear (go Crocs). I am a Bronco football fan and if you and your family enjoying cheering on a different team, that's terrific! We can have fun teasing each other during the upcoming football season. My favorite part of the year is the fall time, but I love the other seasons almost as much. If I had one wish in the world it would be to bring the beach four hours closer!
I hope we have some things in common; I am sure we will enjoy getting to know each other more.
