Christopher P. Brown, M.Ed.
I was born and raised in the inner city of Birmingham, Alabama. Despite growing up in an impoverished and crime infested community, my mother instilled in me to value my education. I accepted my calling as an educator upon graduating from Ramsay High School. As an undergraduate at Baylor University, I felt compelled to inspire, educate, and motivate the youth. In 2010, I became a servant leader with the Children’s Defense Fund Freedom Schools at the Laughlin Memorial Chapel site in Wheeling, WV. I taught an integrated reading curriculum to local youth for the summer. Teaching literacy and empowering students in this particularly low- income area confirmed my desire to become an English/ Reading Teacher.
In 2012, I moved to Katy, Texas to teach at Katy High School. I taught English I for three years and currently I teach English II. In 2015, I graduated with my Masters in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from The University of Texas at Arlington. In 2016, I became an adjunct professor with Houston Community College in the Department of Developmental Education where I teach Integrated Reading and Writing. Currently, I am a doctoral student at the University of West Florida where I am studying Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment.
I serve as the scholarship and education chairman for the Achievement Through Leadership Foundation. I served as the Guide Right Director for the Missouri City- Sugar Land (TX) Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. I am a member of the National Council for Teachers of English, National Alliance of Black School Educators, and the National Association of Multicultural Education.
My philosophy of education is simple: create an engaging, safe, and student-centered learning environment, build authentic relationships with all stakeholders, and learn from my students just as much as they learn from me.
My goal is to create lifelong learners one student at a time.
