   Education

Ms. Brown is a 1972 graduate of McCollum HS (via Bellaire and Terrell Wells). After attending San Antonio College, she transferred to Trinity University and graduated in 1981 with teaching credentials in PE/History. In 2009, she added a certification in Secondary Art.



   Experience

Ms. Brown graduated from Trinity University in 1981, but explored several other careers before settling into teaching. These included event photographer, waitress, raft guide, construction worker, and HIV/AIDS test counselor, among others.

Learning through volunteering has motivated Ms. Brown to also give her time to these causes: Habitat for Humanity, Learning About Learning, Southwest School of Art, Last Chance Forever, Big Bend UltraMarathon, Child Advocates of San Antonio, River Road Neighborhood Association, Rice Festival and Rice Grass. She also volunteers for runners' groups, kayak polo, and kayak slalom events. If there is an opportunity to learn, she considers the time well spent.



 Bio

 

Ms. Brown considers her work with teenagers to be very rewarding. This works has included; 6 years at Bexar County Hospital District doing HIV/AIDS education/counseling and co-facilitating an HIV+ women's support group, 11 years of home instruction for pregnant teens for Harlandale ISD, and currently as the ART/PE teacher (among other duties as assigned) for Frank M. Tejeda Academy, HISD.

For adventure, or lack of judgement, Ms. Brown has camped in 17' weather, rafted rivers at flood level, kayaked the San Antonio River flood gate at Blue Star, flown in gliders, ultralights and hot air balloons, exercised (and been thrown from) polo ponies, wrangled goats, handled an eagle, owl, falcon and hawk and is only two degrees of separation from most (if not all) of Hollywood. None of these experiences indicate any level of skill or expertise, just curiousity and (sometimes misplaced?) trust.
