My name is Jennifer Paul Brown. I came on board as the Parent Mentor for Monroe County Schools in March 2019. I am the proud parent of Zander, a seven year old boy. Zander, or Z as we like to call him, is an energetic little guy who loves to play outside and jump at SkyZone! He also happens to have Autism and is non-verbal. Zander attends Hubbard Elementary School and is enrolled is the Access program.
As a parent of a child with a disability, I understand the challenges that can arise on a daily basis. I hope to be a point of contact to provide tools and resources that may assist you in navigating the school system and the specific needs of your child. Our goal is to make sure your child reaches his/her fullest potential.
