Ms. Katrinka Brown
Hello Trojan Family, I am KaTrinka Brown the Proud Principal of Jackson Middle School. I reside in McLeansville, NC right outside of Greensboro with my 17-year-old daughter Jada who was a student at Jackson Middle School when I first arrived. I attended North Carolina A&T State University for my undergraduate degree; which is a B.S. in Electronics and Computer Technology. I also received a Masters in the Art of Teaching, and a Masters in School Administration from there. Additionally, I have attended the University of North Carolina at Greensboro where I received my Education Specialist degree and where I am currently finishing up my Doctoral of Education degree.
I have served in Guilford County Schools for the past 17 years and look forward too many more. I have worked at Grimsley High School and Southeast Guilford High School, as a teacher for my first four years in the district. Also, I have served as an Assistant Principal and Interim Principal at Northern Guilford Middle School for 6 years. Prior to my time at Northern Guilford Middle School; I spent one year as the Assistant Principal over Curriculum and Instruction at Rochelle Middle School in Kinston, NC for one year.
For the past 6 years, Jackson Middle School staff and students has been my second family. I take pride in ensuring our students receive the best education possible. This work is near and dear to my heart, and I don’t take ‘No’ for an answer when it comes to my student needs. During the 2019-2020 school year, I wrote a grant to integrate STEM technology at our school in order to expose our students to robotics, coding, and other components of STEM education. I am excited to say we received the grant for $1.5 million dollars, and all our students will experience this new cutting-edge experience as middle schoolers.
Again, it is an honor and privilege to lead the Trojan Family. I look forward to continuing to partner with the families and community to maintain the strong engrained JMS culture; and bring my drive, determination, and service leadership heart to Jackson Middle. I am excited to continue to work with the students, staff, parents and community that make Jackson Middle School great.
