Welcome back Deer Creek families! My name is Lisa Brown and I will be
teaching all of the 5th grade reading classes here at Deer Creek Elementary
and writing to my homeroom class. I graduated from Central State University
(UCO today) in 1986 with a bachelor's degree in journalism and then completed
my teaching certification in 1990. Prior to teaching here,I spent a few years
teaching 6th grade in Mesa, Arizona and the last 15 years teaching 5th grade
in the Putnam City School District at Coronado Elementary and Harvest Hills
Elementary. As you can see, fifth grade is home for me! I am so excited to be
here at Deer Creek Elementary again this year. I am part of a phenomenal 5th
Being in the classroom brings me much enjoyment - I am blessed to have a job
that I love so much!
My husband, Jay, and I have been married for 19 years and we have two
children. Our son, Jenner, is a sophmore and our daughter, Jaime, is a
freshman. They are both transfer students at Bethany Public Schools. Jay is
in the oil and gas industry. Like most parents, Jay and I spend a great deal
of time at our children's various sporting events, dance and music classes,
church activities, and being taxi cab drivers. We are the neighborhood house
that is always filled with kids and we wouldn't have it any other way!
I enjoy playing board games and cards, attending OU football games, watching
my children's many activities, taking family vacations, mexican food, and
working out at the gym.
This year will be especially exciting for you and your fifth grade student.
It is the culmination of his/her elementary school years and a time of
preparation for the adventures and challenges of middle school. It is my
ambition to help your student progress and succeed in his/her education. By
working together, we can make your child's year a happy and rewarding one. I
look forward to getting to know your child and making this one of the best
