Ms Brown teaches English & History at The Dragon Academy in Toronto, Canada. Her nomination came from a fellow parent at the school, Camille. Here’s what Camille had to say about Ms Brown.
Ms. Brown makes learning interesting, exciting and the right amount of challenging to bring out the best in every student. She really cares about each student as an individual and gives attention to their individual interests and needs. And she’s nice and patient all of the time.
Now that’s simply fantastic!
We then asked Ms Brown a few questions…
How did you get into teaching?
I have wanted to be a teacher since I was a teenager. I was always interested in sexual health education so I pursued a degree is sexual diversity studies and then went into teachers college to complete my bachelor of education. I was so grateful for the amazing teachers in my life, I wanted to have the same impact on students in the future as a teacher myself. Its been my life long dream, and the career I was meant to have.
What do you hope for your students?
I hope my students will be strong and brave critical thinkers. I hope that they will question everything they see and hear, and most importantly gain confidence in themselves to make their voice heard in this world. I hope my students will go out into the world and remember that knowledge and education are the best tools we have to change this world.
Anything you’d like to share with us? e.g. favorite moments, etc.
More than anything else, I believe in comprehensive, honest and open sexual health education and I am thankful for the Dragon Academy for giving me the chance to implement this program of sexual education into the physical education program.
