Her favorite part of teaching is her students.

“Each day they remind me why I made the choice to teach,” Brown said.

“I want my students to understand their strengths, learn to respect their weaknesses and to never question their ability,” Brown said.

One thing her students may not know about her is that she aims to be optimistic in every situation.
