Mrs. Cheryl Brown
My name is Cheryl Brown and I am blessed to teach Fourth Grade ELA and Social Studies at River Dell. I obtained a BA degree in English Education from the University of South Carolina and an MA degree in Elementary Education from Salem College in Winston-Salem, NC. I have been teaching for 14 years and my experience includes secondary English as well as 1st - 5th grades. I am passionate about teaching, and I love working with parents and students to help them achieve success and foster a love for reading that will last for a lifetime. Reading grows well rounded individuals and builds the foundation for success in all subject areas. I believe that all students can and should enjoy learning, and I seek to provide rich, engaging experiences to guide them on their journey.
When I'm not teaching I enjoy spending time with family, serving in my church, singing, reading, and cuddling my crazy dog, Kramer.

This replaces the previously planned neighborhood parade. Our parade will take place Friday, March 27th from 4:00pm to 5:30pm. Please enter the carpool line and wave to your teachers and staff as you drive through. They will be positioned all along the carpool line with signs waiting to wave and shout, "Hello!"
