Teachers of TN: Candous Brown

“The kids introduce me to things they enjoy, and I, in turn, introduce things to them that I am passionate about. I love the spark they get in their eyes when they understand the content. I love the way the kids take the content and make it their own. I guess, in short, I love the kids. I never thought I’d be a teacher, and now I honestly can’t see myself doing anything else.”

–Candous Brown, high school English language arts teacher, Shelby County Schools
