Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Patrice Brown


I am a graduate of Cherokee High School and the University of North Alabama.  I completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration in 1990 and my Master of Arts in Business and Marketing Education in 2008.  After graduating with my BS degree, I worked for State Farm Insurance and Equifax Credit Bureau.  This business experience is very valuable in teaching business and technology classes.  I taught technology and music classes at Covenant Christian School for 10 years.  I have been married to Kyle Brown, a 1986 Deshler grad, for the past 31 years, and we have two children, Anna and Tye.  I play the piano/keyboard at Faith Church in Muscle Shoals, play cello with the UNA Repratory Orchestra, and love music of all kinds.  I also love to run, and ran my first half marathon (14.2 miles) in September 2012 in Tupelo, MS.  I have since completed two full marathon (26.2 miles), 15 additional half marathons, and 2 ultra marathons.  I love coaching Cross Country with Mrs. Buckner and am very excited about our Cross Country season this year.  We are ready to return to State and compete for a State ranking.  Roll Tide and go Tigers!!
