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.

We wanted to update all of our morning carpool families, as well as our morning walkers. All students will now enter at the main entrance in the very front of the school rather than at the glass hallways. At this time we do not have staff available to monitor the glass hallway entrances, and safety is our first priority. This will begin for all tomorrow, October 5th.
