Hello, my name is Leslie Brown and I am the art teacher at Collegiate Academy. I moved to Galveston in 2013 and started teaching at that time at Scott. I have been teaching art since 1985! My classes write and illustrate the Scotty books along with other fun art projects. I am very excited to move to the new campus at Stewart Rd. where we will have room for a kiln(clay oven.) I write and illustrate books on my own as well as with the students and I love to travel. Fun facts about me: I was born in Mexico and also lived in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I have lived in Texas, Florida, New Mexico, and Arizona! I love to ride horses and jet skis and have trained hundreds of horses. My first horse was a wild mustang- my parents said if I wanted a horse I had to go out and catch one so I did. My husband, Chef Kenny is also a published writer! My son Bryan graduated from the Art Institute and is a video game designer. I have 3 dogs- one is 20 years old! I look forward to seeing everyone as the new year unfolds!
