Ms. Jessica Brown

I am so excited to be at Gateway Schooll! I am originally from New York, but went to Marietta College in Marietta, OH, where I studied Elementary Education, thinking that I would become a kindergarten teacher.  Instead, I ended up teaching grades 6-9 for ten years in New York.  I earned my master's degree in Mental Health Counseling at Fairfield University in Fairfield, CT in 2005.  I moved to North Carolina in 2010 and have no plans to ever leave! In 2015, I began working for Caldwell County Schools as the Assistant Director of WrapAround, but I missed being in a school building with students, so I returned to school at Lenoir-Rhyne University to earn my School Counseling extension.  I began working at West Caldwell High in 2018 and was transferred to Gateway in 2020. During my free time, I enjoy yoga, reading, and spending time with my husband, Dan, and my two daughters, Arielle and Gracie.
