Our teachers are amazing, which is why we share the story of a school’s Teacher of the Year every week ... please help us celebrate 2022 Woodstock Middle School Teacher of the Year Justin Brown!
Woodstock Middle School 2022 Teacher of the Year Justin Brown’s career has taken him to classrooms around the world.
His experiences strengthened his abilities as a teacher, especially as a teacher of students learning English as a second language, a role he’s held at WMS for the past three years. They also have strengthened his belief in the power of invested educators who want to make a positive difference in the lives of young people.
“For some students, that difference may well come in the form of knowledge and skills that they develop in our classrooms but, for others, the difference might just be the way that we support them as they discover how the academic experience fits in with the goals and aspirations they have for themselves,” said Mr. Brown, who is in his 13th year as an educator.
His colleagues praise him both for his outstanding instruction and his dedication to supporting students and fellow teachers. “To say he is well respected by all is an understatement,” a colleague shared, noting his development of innovative ideas to better serve students who are new to the U.S. “JB is a champion for all students, but especially for those who are at a disadvantage because of language development.”
In his own words: “My goal as an educator is to foster in students an appreciation for the transformative role that education can play in their own lives.”
