Ms. Tammy Brown
Welcome to another exciting year at Fishburn Park Elementary, where I am honored to serve as principal!
Fishburn Park is unique because we are a focus school for STEAM. We offer fun and educational opportunities that allow students to learn in the greenhouse, till and sow seeds in the vegetable garden and raised flower beds, and observe insects in our two pollinator gardens. We also offer monthly and weekly STEAM activities where students complete hands-on lessons that are exciting and challenging.
My biology degree and love of science make me feel right at home at Fishburn Park Elementary. As a graduate of Patrick Henry High School, I have a vested interest in our school district. After high school, I earned my bachelor’s degree from Roanoke College and my master’s degree in school administration from the University of Virginia. I have been an educator in Roanoke City Schools since 2003, and my teaching experience spans from elementary education through the high school level. This will be my ninth year as an administrator.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my two boys, camping, reading, running and competing in obstacle course challenges.
I’m looking forward to another great year at Fishburn Park Elementary! All Systems Go!
