Ms. Brown, Kristi

Ms. Brown has been teaching art at River Bend Middle School since the very first year the school opened in 2002-2003. 

After graduating from Lycoming College in Williamsport, Pennsylvania with a bachelor's degree in Studio Art and certification to teach K-12, Ms. Brown relocated from her tiny hometown of Rome, PA to Loudoun County. Here, she continued her education by completing a graduate certificate in Landscape Design at George Washington University's Loudoun campus. At River Bend, Ms. Brown has taught every combination of middle school grade levels and enjoys them all. Her own artistic concentration is watercolor painting, particularly portraiture.

At home, Ms. Brown enjoys hanging out with her two awesome kids and two adorable dogs, reading, painting, baking, listening to music, and knitting.
