Meet Mrs. Brown 

nullI have been teaching for 36 years -- and 35 have been at St. Augustin Catholic School! I grew up on a farm near Denison, Iowa, and I attended Iowa State University.

What I like most about teaching: Watching the children grow academically, spiritually, and emotionally and knowing I had a role in their success and growth is so rewarding. I enjoy watching and listening to the children's reactions when they learn how to do something they didn't think possible. Young students have an eagerness and such energy and humor.

About my family: I have been married to my wonderful husband for 36 years. We have four children -- three daughters and one son. All of my girls are married, so I have three great sons-in-law as well. My son is engaged, so in the year 2020 I will be gaining a daughter-in-law. I have eight beautiful grandchildren. My husband and I have a Newfoundland puppy named Lucy and one cat named Daisy.

Outside of school I enjoy: I like spending as much time with my family as possible. I love to travel. I like cheering on the Iowa State Cyclones, Chicago Cubs, and Chicago Bears.
