My name is Jeanette Brown, and I am blessed to teach kindergarten here at Trinity Christian Academy.
I always knew I wanted to work with children in one way or another and went to the University of Nebraska at Kearney to become a teacher. I graduated in 1997 and have been teaching Pre-K to 1st grade ever since. I landed in Kindergarten, what seems like a million years ago, and found it is my favorite grade to teach. I love teaching all subjects but especially reading.
In 2008, I graduated with a Masters in Reading from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. I married my wonderful husband, Travis, in June of 2015, and we are expanding our family by fostering to adopt. I can honestly say that fostering to adopt is one of the hardest things I have ever done, but I have loved every minute with my children and would not give back one day. When not at school I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, and traveling to the Colorado Mountains every summer.
When you walk into my classroom you will notice right away that it is very colorful and focused on the children in it. I have student artwork everywhere, their names are in several places, and there are lots of things to do. My room is a safe place for the students to learn in and to express their feelings. I believe that learning should be fun, loud at times, and sometimes messy.
I feel it is my job to not only teach academics but to also teach my children about God and His love for us. When my student’s leave my class not only are they fully prepared for first grade, they also have developed a true love of Jesus.
I love teaching at Trinity Christian Academy because it is my second family. When I came to teach in 2004, I knew that God put me here for a very important reason. I love knowing that my co-workers, students, and families are praying for my day and my personal needs. I believe that Christian Education is successful when the parents, the church they attend, and the teacher are all on the same page and teaching the same principals. I truly feel this is what we do at TCA.
