It is with great honor and excitement that I introduce myself, Nicole Brown, as the Principal of Gilbert Elementary School. I am beyond thrilled to join the Gilbert school family! My passion for education began in 2005 as a 3rd grade Bilingual Teacher. Throughout my career I have served students and families as a Teacher, Assistant Principal and Principal in three Texas districts. My experience working with students, staff and parents has brought forth specific beliefs in teaching and learning.
1. Students must be involved in the learning process in order to fuel their thirst and motivation to learn each and every day.
2. Students need to be active participants in learning. Students learn best by doing.
3. Students need timely feedback to improve. As teachers gather data on student performance, it is important to share this data and hold students accountable for goal setting and progress monitoring.
