Wayne County names teacher of the year

Posted August 28, 2009

— A reading specialist is Wayne County's teacher of the year, the district announced Thursday.

Gregory Harold Brown, a first and fourth grade reading recovery teacher and reading specialist at North Drive Elementary School, took home a $1,500 check and a $5,000 Kemp/Twiford Worldview Travel/Study Award to be used to travel outside the United States.

Brown has 19 years of teaching experience. He started as a fourth grade teacher at School Street Elementary. He has been at North Drive since 1995.

“Through the years, it has been so fulfilling to hear a previously unsuccessful child exclaim, ‘I can read now, Mr. Brown!’ It doesn’t get any better than that,” he said.

Brown will advance to the regional Teacher of the Year competition.
