Get to Know Ms. Brown
I starting a new year at the Olathe Schools District at Arbor Creek Elementary. My goofy, passionate, and happy personality connects with children and it truly fulfills my heart. I am so grateful that I get to go to work everyday and help students’ process of finding their own artist creativity.
A little background about myself.. I went to the University of Kansas and graduated in May of 2017. I began my journey working at Riverview Elementary with a great group of people, now my path has taken me back to Olathe, where I was a student. While I was part time at Riverview I substitute taught through Morgan Hunter Education. This summer, I will be working with aspiring artists age range from six to adult at The Culture House in Olathe!
I have done several cross-curricular lessons with my grade level teachers, which is my favorite type of learning (project based learning, or PBL)! For example, 1st grade’s reading and science curriculum has started off with animals and their habitats. Students had researched their animal, what it eats, if it is hunted, etc. They then got to go to the Kansas City Zoo to see their animal so we could create it in clay in my class. This is a tradition through Riverview and I decided to add creating a habitat for the clay animal with shoeboxes! The kids had so much fun and reached a depth of knowledge through all of these activities. This is only one example of the cross-curricular lessons I have completed this school year.
