Tiffany Brown, Ed. D.
Long Beach Unified School District
Dr. Brown prides herself on working with families, community members and schools in a manner that creates a “village approach” toward educating our youth. Throughout her 26 years with LBUSD, a central theme in Dr. Brown’s work has been the belief that applying an equity lens to decisions allows for groups that are traditionally not acknowledged to have full voice and access to opportunities. In her role as deputy superintendent, Dr. Brown continues her focus on equity through engaging youth, community groups and District staff around the belief that equity should be at the core of all we do.
Dr. Brown began working for the District in 1997 as a school psychologist and has held various positions within the School Support Services office, including senior psychologist, director of Student Support Services, and assistant superintendent of School Support Services. She has had considerable success helping schools assess and design intervention systems to support struggling students while efficiently using available resources.
Dr. Brown earned an undergraduate degree in applied behavioral science from UC Davis, a master’s degree in counseling and a school psychology credential from San Diego State University, and doctorate in educational leadership from UCLA.
Dr. Brown is a resident of Long Beach and the mother of a District student. She has been recognized by numerous community groups for her commitment to the broader community of Long Beach and has received several accolades for her work, including the “Impact Award'' issued by City Prosecutor Doug Haubert’s Office, recognition by “End Abuse Long Beach” for a history of working toward the rights and positive treatment of all children, and acknowledgement of being a “Student Champion” by Californians for Justice.
Education is Dr. Brown’s life-long work and hobby. She welcomes the challenges of this new day and will remain steadfast in the pursuit of equity and justice for the most marginalized children in the Long Beach Unified School District.
