Ms. Lynn Brown
Welcome to my web page. What a great way to let you learn about me. Though born in New Jersey, I am definitely a Californian. I grew up and spent much of my adult years in the Los Angeles area. I was a "Valley Girl." I attended college in San Diego and finished up at Cal State University Northridge. I received my teaching credential including ESL certification from CA at La Verne University. I worked 2 years in California before relocating to Texas. I took all my certification tests for teaching ec-8, as well as ESL and GATE certifications. I lived in Houston for 6 years, teaching in Houston ISD and then relocated to the Dallas-Fort Worth area 4 years ago. This is my fourth year with Duncanville and it is a terrific district. I love teaching and hope to continue to do so for many years. My 4th grade classes have been terrific. I cannot imagine not having them to teach.
Besides teaching, I read quite a lot. I also love spending time with my grandkids, ages 19, 8, and 6. They keep me on my toes. I actually moved up to Dallas to be closer to them and their mother, who happens to be my daughter. I never had thought that we would end up living together. Life is full of wonderful surpises. I have traveled to many of the states in the US, and hope to eventually travel outside our borders. I have 3 grown daughters, 2 who live in Texas and one who lives in Canada.
I always work had for my students, and I am sure that this year will be no different. They will also have a chance to work hard. 4th grade can be difficult. It is a giant step from 3rd to 4th. There are so many new concepts and skills to learn. It can be slow going at times, but my kids will excel. I know they will!
I am looking forward to an amazing, super year
