Mrs. Stephanie Brown

Hello! My name is Stephanie Brown.  I teach 4th grade at Jefferson Elementary.  This year marks my nineteenth year teaching in the Marion school district.  During my first year in the district, I taught 1st grade and reading at Longfellow Elementary.  After that year, I taught language arts for nine years at Marion Junior High, and then I moved to Jefferson Elementary to teach 4th grade.  I have been at Jefferson for nine years.  I am very passionate about teaching and instilling kindness and compassion in my students.  My classroom has zero-tolerance for bullying or hurtful words.  Each year I strive to build a kind, safe environment for my students so they can set personal goals and be successful. 

I live in Marion with my husband, Greg, and daughter Grace.  We have a cat named Coach and a friendly Holland Lop bunny that likes to spend time in my classroom during the week.  In my spare time, I like to travel, especially to the beach, and read.
