Amber Brown, Lead Teacher
I am a mother of two boys, Michael who was born in 2009 and Joshua who was born in 2011. I have been married since 2006 to Jason, who has recently medically retired from the Army after 9 ½years. We also have two dogs named Chewbacca and Princess Leia and a cat named Peso.
I am originally from Washington State where I still have family. Jason is from Texas and we choose North Carolina on a compromise because we couldn’t agree on whether to live in Washington or Texas when he retired from the Army. We bought our first house in May out on High Rock Lake.
I have been working in the childcare field since 2010 when I opened my own daycare out of my house while in the military. I worked with the school age children while at Fort Polk, LA for almost 2 years. I graduated from Catawba College in May 2016, with a Bachelors of Education in Birth to Kindergarten.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family but also love to do some arts and crafts. I am also into photography and am addicted to Pinterest.
