2nd Grade

MPES Second Grade

Audrey Brown

I graduated in May of 2012 from MTSU with my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education.  I have spent my career teaching 3rd and 2nd grade.  I LOVE teaching and try to instill that love into my students each day.  I have lived in Columbia/Lawrenceburg for most of my life.  I have been married since 2007 to Tyler Brown.  We have 3 amazing children: Emree, Tatum, and Maddux.  We have one puppy named Rocket who we love! Most of my free time is spent with my husband and three kids! We love to spend time together playing games and watching movies! I am so grateful to be teaching at MPES and absolutely LOVE my job!

Starting my career at Culleoka Unit school for 5 years, I transferred to Mt. Pleasant Elementary School in the fall of 2005 to be closer to home and to be able to teach the children of Mt. Pleasant. I have been at MPES for 11 years and have taught 2nd and 3rd grade during that time. Being a graduate of MPHS, it was important to me to be involved in our community and give back to the little town that I love. I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with my bachelor's in Elementary Education in 2000 and continued with my schooling at Tennessee State University for my Master's in Administration and Supervision. After college I moved back to Mt. Pleasant with my high school sweetheart, Michael Hay, because we wanted to start our family and have our children grow up in a place like Mt. Pleasant. Michael has been a Mt. Pleasant police officer for 13 years and is the Mt. Pleasant Chief of Police. We have 2 children 15 year old Madi, a sophomore at MPHS, and 12 year old Connor, a 7th grader at MPMS. Both are very active in sports such as cheerleading, football, softball, and baseball. Typically during any of those seasons, you can find me at a ball field cheering on my kids and the Mt. Pleasant Tigers.

For as long as I could remember I have always wanted to be a teacher and instill the love of learning in children. I teach my students by exploration and investigation of new topics and create a love of reading, writing, and math. Through hands on activities and interactive learning, my students are engaged and ready to learn but have fun the whole time! I look forward to working with your 2nd grader and can't wait for a most memorable year of growing and learning!

It’s been said that winding roads lead to the most wonderful destinations. I’m so glad that they led me to Mt. Pleasant Elementary! 

     I graduated from Harding University in 1991, and I have taught Kindergarten through 7thgrade. My husband, Leslie and I have three children, Allen, Malori and Chase. We, also, have two dogs, Toby and Coach. I love to read and spend time with my family and friends!

     I believe that it is our job to meet children where they are,  and push them to achieve more than they ever thought they could. I hope that our students will never stop questioning what they don’t know, learning from others, and growing from their experiences!

     I’m looking forward to another great year at MPES!!!

I got my Associates from Columbia State Community College and my Bachelors from Middle Tennessee State University with their 2+2 program.

I grew up in Culleoka and attended Culleoka Unit School. After college my husband and I got married and moved to Alabama for his job. During that time I worked at daycare in Athens and taught the four year old class. After living there for 5 years we decided we wanted to move back to Culleoka and raise our family here. If any of you have any questions please feel free to contact me at kring@mauryk12.org

At a young age I always knew I wanted to become a teacher. After high school, I attended Middle Tennessee State University where I graduated with a degree in elementary education. Today, it is my goal to motivate all of my students to love learning and to encourage them to strive to reach their full potential in an environment that is safe and celebrates each student's uniqueness and achievements. I have been teaching since 2007 and have been here at MPES since 2012. Teaching is my number one passion, but I also love the outdoors and am an avid fan of football, especially the Tennessee Vols...Go Big Orange! I look forward to another wonderful year here at MPES!
