Faculty Profile
Rebecca Brown
Fine Arts Teacher, Art
An Atlanta native, Rebecca Brown graduated from Georgia State University with both a B.A. in fine arts and a M.A.Ed. degree. In 2006 she earned a 10-year National Teaching Certification from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. National Board certified teachers are highly accomplished educators who meet high and rigorous standards through intensive study, expert evaluation, self-assessment and peer review. Brown taught art in a public high school for 11 years before coming to Whitefield. She believes that every student has some natural artistic ability which can be developed and refined. “I see myself like a gold miner,” she said, “digging for nuggets of talent beneath the surface of every student.”
