Who is Mrs. Brown?

Hello, my name is Kelly Brown. The 2011-2012 school year will be my 18th year teaching. My very first year I taught Kindergarten and the next year I taught first grade at Forest Heights Elementary in Gastonia, NC. I then transferred to Cherryville Elementary in Cherryville, NC and taught first grade for 15 years. Well...........this year I will teach Kindergarten! I am excited and nervous about the change, but fortunately, my wonderful principal is not going to make me move my classroom! Whew, big relief!
