I am from Denver originally, and I couldn’t be happier to still call Colorado home! On the weekends you can expect me to be doing something fun outside with my family, friends, fiance and our dog, named Bandit! I will be getting married on October 12th this year in Evergreen, Colorado. My name will be changing from Miss Brown to Mrs. Mielcarek, pronounced MEL-CARE-ECK (don’t worry, we will practice saying it!). The opportunities I have had in classroom settings have taught me to value each student for the individuals they are by getting to know them on personal and academic levels. I will strive to guide each of my students to be successful in their growth by reaching their goals and milestones through developmentally appropriate practices.
