My name is Renea Brown. I’m excited to join the Trip family this school year to teach 4th grade (all subjects) and I can’t wait to see what all we accomplish this school year! I received my Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education with a Certification in Special Education from Georgia State in 2015. I received my Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education in 2018. I’ve taught 2nd through 5th grades in Clayton County and Dekalb County. 
 
Outside of teaching I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. My husband and son are the joy of my life and I love making memories with them. I’m a huge Marvel comic fan and will watch any Marvel movie on repeat any day.
