Bill BrownSocial Studies Teacher, Grades 6 and 8
Bill arrived at CHC in 2013, after living in six other states and traveling much of the world. Before becoming a teacher, he put his bachelor's degree in Business from Washington University in St. Louis to work as an insurance underwriter and claim representative and as the manager of a bookkeeping team at a telecommunications company. He tapped into his passion for teaching when he joined the nonprofit organization Youth with a Mission and lived in Russia for three years, where he taught English and helped run a training school for people new in their Christian faith. He remained with the organization for an additional six years, spending time in Mexico, Czech Republic and South Africa.
Bill ultimately returned to Colorado, where he received a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Denver. He is certified to teach Kindergarten though Grade 6 and secondary Social Studies -- the subject he is keenly interested in helping students understand with a biblical worldview. Before arriving at CHC, Bill taught in Jefferson County Schools and at an expeditionary/Outward Bound magnet school.
Outside of CHC, Bill enjoys reading, writing, hiking, biking, running and game nights with his wife and their three children. He also looks forward to occasional teaching stints in his children's Sunday School classes.
His favorite Bible verse: "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come." (2 Cor 5:17)
