Heather R. Brown was not born in Atlanta but considers herself an Atlanta native. She moved to the city when she was five years old. She attended Atlanta Public Schools kindergarten-twelfth grade. After high school, Mrs. Brown attended the University of Miami in Coral Gables, FL, where she earned a B. S. Ed in Elementary Education and Psychology, as well as a Master’s degree in Reading and Learning Disabilities.
In 1999, Heather Brown began her teaching career at her alma mater, R. N. Fickett Elementary School where she taught 1st grade. She then taught 2nd grade and served as an Early Intervention Program (EIP) teacher at L. O. Kimberly Elementary. In 2006, she began teaching at Heritage Academy as the Gifted and Talent Development teacher.
Heather Brown is dedicated to her work with children. She believes that children should be exposed to the world that reaches beyond their community and traditional curriculum. This belief fuels her as she designs lessons and field experiences with real world applications. Her students have learned things such as how to design and build the most efficient kites and then crossed the globe with her to visit the place where kites were invented-China!
When she is not working, Heather enjoys spending time with her husband and two children, Jordan and India.
