• Welcome to Ms. Brown's Class!

    I could not be more thrilled to be starting a new year here at Sutter Middle School! This will be my third year at Sutter, and I am ready to make it the best one yet! Before coming to Sutter, I taught both middle and high school English and English Language Development in the area. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a minor in music from California State University, Sacramento and went on to complete my Master of Arts degree in English with a concentration in literature and my single subject teaching credential in English there as well. I am excited to learn and grow with my students and I know that with hard work, kindness, and support for each other we can accomplish anything we set our minds to. Students, be prepared to work hard and learn a lot this year!

     

    A Note to Parents: The best way you can help your student stay on track this year is to check Powerschool regularly. You may also check the online agenda I keep here on my teacher website for daily updated agendas and assignments. This can be found on the page for your student's class using the links to the left. These are tools that will greatly help ensure you and your student are aware of what is due, how they are doing, and what they can do to improve.

    Teaching Philosophy

    My approach to teaching begins with recognizing every student’s potential and holding the highest expectations for all students. Students perform their best when they know that their teacher supports them and recognizes their abilities. Additionally, students must be offered the opportunity to learn they way they learn best, and as such it is important that I know my students in order to provide them with the tools they need to be successful and identify what methods of differentiation might be applied to my instructional practices. I work to ensure my students can succeed and maintain a growth mindset and want nothing more than for them to be able to learn in an environment in which they feel challenged, safe, valued, and respected. I look forward to supporting every student's success in my classes this year!
