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.
