Jody Brown

I plan on nominating 4 outstanding teachers for this because all are outstanding professionals who this year decided to take on a challenge not many of us could.Jody Brown Kelly Colucci Julie Sekulits and Tina Pipp all moved from Bellamy Elementary this year to Foster Elementary. Bellamy is a Title 1 school which means its student body is comprised mainly of children on free lunch and therefore from lower income families. Foster has both Title 1 and "Achievement School" status. The latter describes a school with a student body who is mostly on free lunch and struggles deeply with academics. Ms. Brown was always an exemplary teacher at Bellamy. Her gentle understanding of how every child is unique is powerful. This year she decided to challenge herself and make the move to Foster.Foster's challenges have been a very taxing struggle yet Ms. Brown is determined to make life-long changes in the lives of her students. She is kind and understanding but fun and driven. Her students will be forever changed by her generosity of heart and mind.
