Mr. Tom Brown
Hello Honors Academy of Literature families. My name is Tom Brown and I am excited to be a member of your community. I will be supporting Dr. Andi, the staff, students and families in many different areas as we strive to give our scholars the best education possible in the best environment possible.
I come to your community with twenty-five years of experience in education. I spent ten year educating young scholars in the field of mathematics in grades 7 – 12. This was followed by three years serving the Galena High School community as an assistant principal. Finally, I spent the last 12 years serving the south Reno community as the principal of Galena High School. Education has been a lifelong passion of service and I look forward to continuing to serve our community at the Honors Academy of Literature.
My wife, Michelle, and I live in south Reno and have three children. Two are graduates of UNR, Andrew and Haley, and one is a current UNR student, Nick. We enjoy spending time with our family and at the lake.
Over my time in education I have learned that relationships and community are two of the most important pieces in high functioning schools. I will be working hard to get to know the students, staff, and families in our community. I look forward to meeting all of the families in the weeks and months to come and joining together to continue to provide our scholars with a great education at a great school!
