About Mr. Brown: I Graduated from Homewood-Flossmoor High School in 1990. I was in the United States Army from 1991-2006. I recieved my Bachelors degree in Business Administration from Governors State University 2002. I also have two Masters Degrees, the first in Curriculum and Instruction(2011) and the second in Educational Administration(2017). I have been in Educational Field for 9 years. 
My philosophy is that "Students learn and perform the best when given the opportunity to be themselves, provided guidance, nurturing, and structure that will benefit them throughout life."  

About This Class: The class is centered around fractions and how they are used in several mathematical operations. We tie basic math facts into remote learning, which entail leads to working with real world scenarios. This gives the student a better outlook and  appreciation for previous knowledge learned before encountering fractions.
