Lynn Brown received a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. She taught 6th grade for ten years in Brookville, Ohio—a small rural community with the elementary, junior high, and high school all on one plot of land. She was also the 7th and 8th grade girls’ volleyball coach. After seeing the vital role that reading played in children’s academic success, she earned a master’s degree in reading supervision from Miami University.
Upon moving to Texas in 1981, she was a stay-at-home mother to two young children for several years. She returned to her education career and had more than thirty years as a reading teacher, an elementary school assistant, associate and then principal in Klein ISD. She was chosen Elementary Principal of the Year in 2003 – the first year the designation was established. In 2004, she opened a brand new Title I campus with a very diverse population. Five years later, it became the first Title I campus in the district to achieve a rating of Exemplary. She retired in 2013.
Lynn has been an active member of Faithbridge United Methodist Church for years, serving on numerous teams such as Children’s Ministry, Elder Team, Martha’s Kitchen, and Prayer Team. She worked closely with Faithbridge to form a powerful faith-based alliance to assist families in the Klein ISD Title I communities. This initiative is now a dynamic 501 c (3) organization, Bridging for Tomorrow.
