• Welcome to the 2020-21!     

    Welcome to Lakes Middle School and Mrs. Brown's 6th grade Social Studies class!  We will studythe following civilizations:   Ancient Mesopotamia, Ancient India, Ancient China, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome.  This year we are going to focus on applying G.R.A.P.E.S. to our ancient civilizations. G.R.A.P.E.S refers to Geography, Religion, Achievements, Political System, Economics and Social Structure. But first, we will review the states and do a quick roadtrip around the country. Next, we will learn about maps and globes before we start going back into ancient times!  

    Be sure to check out Schoology.  It will be our main source of communicating about assignments and grades! 

    A little bit about me....

    I have been at Lakes a really long time...I started teaching here in the very early 1990s.  I have taught all the 6th grade subject, spent some time in Title 1 Reading, did a few years in 7th and 8th grade Language Arts, and now I am back in 6th grade teaching social studies. I loved teaching the other middle schol grades, but my heart was always with the sixth graders! 

    Currently, I live in the woods south of town with my husband Bob and precious dog, Pearlie.  We have been married since 1982 and we have two grown children.  We started out in Billings, Montana and moved to Coeur d'Alene in 1990.   I am a grandma to four beautiful, busy boys.

    I love learning especially learning about the world we live in past and present.
