Welcome to Mrs. Brown's First Grade Classroom

Mrs. Brown
Welcome to the 2020 - 2021 school year! I am committed to making this year one of excitement, growth, and opportunity, both academically and socially for my first grade students. I will guide and encourage your child, celebrating each step of the way as he or she gains a love of learning, self-confidence and the academic and social skills that form a foundation for continued success.

This is my 29th year of teaching and 23rd year in Mahtomedi.  I have taught students with special needs in grades kindergarten through sixth grade and have also been a 4th grade classroom teacher. I earned my Bachelor of Science- Teaching Degree in the areas of Elementary Education and Special Education at Winona State University and a Masters degree in the area of Teaching and Learning through the University of St. Mary's- Winona.

I love teaching and look forward to caring for, supporting and encouraging your child daily as we embark on the wonderful adventure of                                                                 learning!

Our School
At Wildwood Elementary School, we honor the whole child and teach future-ready skills of inspiring curiosity, embracing change, and turning ideas into action. Our talented teachers and staff members work with students in small class sizes and nurture a culture of excellence that has become the expectation and norm. Our students learn social-emotional skills alongside academic core areas in order to gain the foundation for academic success. In addition, they have the opportunity to engage in learning with specialists in gym, art, media, music, and STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) classes. Our elementary school is surrounded by green space and our students enjoy recess at our natural playground and attend classes in our outdoor classroom. We have an engaged and supportive parent community who volunteers and supports the school with academic opportunities and tools. Our District is a leader in engineering and science and we value academic areas that will spark curiosity, fuel creativity, and instill a lifelong passion for innovation in our students.
