Hello! My name is Morgan Brown, and I'm from Houston, TX. I'm currently a senior at the University of Houston-Victoria majoring in Early Childhood Education. I chose Early Childhood Education because I've always had a passion for working with and teaching kids. I love being able to not only be a teacher to my students but a friend as well! My favorite part of teaching is being able to see the light bulbs light up when students understand the concept or lesson. My philosophy of education is I believe all children can learn and enjoy the process of learning. I also believe that children learn best when they enjoy learning.
I am so excited to be here at Trinity teaching, helping, and mentoring our students.
