Welcome to 2nd Grade!

My name is Kelly Brown.  This is my second year teaching at Heart River Elementary School.  I’ve spent the last 18 years teaching 2nd grade in Colorado Springs, Colorado.  I was born at the Air Force Academy, the youngest of 6, and have always lived in Colorado.  I attended the  University of Northern Colorado and earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education.  Our son is in his senior year at Bard College in NY.  My husband, Nathan, and I thought it was time for some adventure.  So we landed here, in the Badlands of North Dakota!  We spend a lot of time biking and hiking with our stubborn black lab, Stella.  I’m enjoying being part of the Heart River Elementary team.
