Mrs. Althea Brown
Dear Parents and Guardians,
I am so excited that your child is in our Kindergarten class for the 2019-2020 school term. I am looking forward to a great school year being partners in your child’s learning experience!
I am Althea Brown, and this will be my 18th year teaching. I graduated from Fort Valley State University where I received my bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education. I have taught the following: pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, first, third, and fifth grade. I have held teacher credentials in Georgia, Hawaii, Kansas, Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA), Arizona and presently, Texas. I love teaching! I have experience working with numerous students as I have served alongside my husband 24 of his 30 years of military service. We have three wonderful children also known as our “Angels”! I am super excited to be at Clear Spring Elementary!
I sincerely care about the children with whom I interact and feel that they are entitled to the best! In order for this to happen, my goal will be to create a social emotional learning environment. All students will be responsible for making appropriate behavioral choices to create a positive environment for everyone.
It is my goal for your child to meet/master standards in kindergarten this year. If you have ideas or information about your child that would help him or her succeed, I would love to hear from you. My job is to be flexible and do what works best for your child. In order to ensure that each child has a safe environment for learning to take place, we will adhere to routines and procedures.
Please see our Classroom Routines and Procedures…
- Follow Directions quickly.
- Raise your hand for permission to speak.
- Raise your hand for permission to leave your seat.
- Make Smart Choices.
- Keep Your Dear Teacher Happy. (Please note that when students are learning that makes their Dear Teacher HappyJ!)
Communication is essential. You are an integral part of your child’s education. Conferences will be held at least once or twice during the school year for us to talk. However, if there is ever a time that you would like to meet, please feel free to contact me. The best way to contact me is through Class Dojo. Please note that I will respond to you as soon as possible.
I am looking forward to an adventurous and productive year!
