Welcome to 4th grade!
My name is Jillian Brown and I am very excited to be continueing my passion for teaching here at Deer Crossing! For a little history on me, I was born and raised in a small town called Eden, NY just outside of Buffalo. My parents still live there and I enjoy going back to visit for a little taste of home. I have two brothers, one younger and one older, and an amazing sister-in-law who has become a great friend that all now live in Maryland.
For college, I went to Syracuse University (GO orange!) where I earned bachelor's degrees in Elementary Education, Special Educaiton, and Sociology. From there, I moved to Colorado Springs, CO where I have lived and taught for the past five years. I loved the active lifestyle, beautiful weather, and the opportunity to travel around the west. As the years go on however, I realized being near my family was most important in my life. So, I packed up and I moved to Maryland where both my brothers are and my parents are only a drive away!
I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with your child this year and am encouraged by all the hardwork I have seen from each of them so far. Please feel free to contact me with any questions at any time. I look forward to an amazing year!
