Christy Brown

John Colemon Elementary

Grade: Other

Mrs. Brown is amazing! I was ready to leave teaching before she showed up. She has changed the whole dynamic of our school! Mrs. Brown became a principal shortly before covid became a thing and our school was where she started. She has handled every situation like a champion! Upset parents, upset teachers, upset children, covid, testing, the list goes on and on and on. If you didn't know any better, you'd think she has been a principal most of her life. She's not perfect (no one is), she doesn't have super human powers, she not a robot. She gets tired, she gets emotional (so she says), but you'd NEVER know it because she hides it, and she hides it well. I've NEVER seen her NOT with a smile on her face. I've told her often that I don't know how she does it. I blessed to work for her! I just don't understand how a person can live an hour away from work, get there around 6 a.m., dressed like a model, hair that looks like she just walked out of a salon, make up that looks like a professional did it, she legitimately cares for all of us and wants to see everyone successful and she does it with a smile on her face. I've seen her have the "hard talks" with others and she does it in a way that convinces them everything is going to be better than okay. John Colemon Elementary (and the world) is a MUCH better place with Christy Brown in it!!!!! She deserves this recognition more than anyone else I've ever met in my life.
