Dean of Student Support, Division III Lead, Gifted Education Lead, English Language Learner Specialist
Ms. Brown earned a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction and her endorsement as a Gifted Specialist. She was the 2012 winner of the Charter School Teacher Leader of the Year Award from the Colorado League of Charter Schools. She is thrilled to be a part of such an remarkable group of educators and life-long learners, and is enjoying developing her new role as Dean of Student Support. Since beginning her teaching career, she has found that students get the most out of learning experiences when they are exploring concepts and problem solving, both independently and cooperatively with other students, making lots of perfect mistakes along the way! Ms. Brown views her role as Dean of Student Support as a facilitator and guide in the learning process for both teachers and students. She is excited for the opportunity to coach teachers in their planning and unit design, integrating gifted best practice, as well as in creative approaches to everyday classroom situations. She’s also looking forward to supporting students as they learn to navigate academics and interactions with peers and with the adults in their world. She enjoys working with AcademyACL parents and staff to provide a safe, supportive, and extraordinary learning experience for our students.
