Degrees and Certifications:
I'm Mr. Brown, and this is my first year teaching in the Burton School District. I have previously worked as a substitute teacher in the Porterville Area for the last few years, and recently completed the teacher's credentialing program at Fresno State. I've spent most of my life in the Porterville area, attending Burton schools from Kindergarten through 8th grade, and graduating from Monache High School in 2009. From there, I attended Bakersfield College, Porterville College, and Graduated with my BA in History from Missouri Valley College in 2014.
I chose to work in education because I truly enjoy helping people; to help them to obtain their goals and surpass their limits. There is no better place to do that then from inside of a classroom. Everyday, I have the opportunity to help another person learn something new about the world they live in, and to help them develop into a better, more knowledgeable member of our society. That is something I look forward to everyday, and is the reason why I'm so excited for the opportunity to work here in the Burton School District.
