Mrs. Crystal Brown

íHola! Bienvenidos a mi pagina.. Me llamo Crystal Brown.

Hello, welcome to my website, my name is Crystal Brown.

I have taught English as a Second Language at various schools and levels for 21 years. Although I taught grades 3-5 in the beginning of my career, and middle school ESL elective for several years in-between, I am currently enjoying and adjusting to teaching 9th through 12th grade English Language Learners. I call Fayetteville, (Fort Bragg) North Carolina my home town, but currently I live in a rural Johnston County town just north of Harnett Central High School. I have my Master's Degree in Bilingual-Multicultural Education and my National Board Certification in English as a New Language. My family includes my husband and I, our two children, ages 13 and 15, a Chiweenie, a Schnoodle and a Rat Terrier, our three dogs.  I always seek to enrich my teaching and become a more knowledgeable advocate for my students.

I discovered my love of languages in middle school and studied both German and Spanish throughout high school and college. During my undergraduate studies at Western Carolina University, I studied abroad in Mannheim, Germany to learn the language and find a deeper connection to my mother’s family which is still living there. I love to travel and explore other cultures and have visited 14 different countries. My favorite memories of exploration include brief visits to Greece and Egypt wherew I was able to see in vivid reality the places I had read about in history books.
