Welcome to 2nd Grade!
My name is Mindy Brame and I am so excited about our upcoming school year! This is my 20th year teaching at Oak Ridge Elementary School. During this time, I taught 3rd grade for 15 years and the past 5 years, have been with my 2nd Grade friends. I was born and raised in Guilford County and attended NW area schools. I attended Greensboro College and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with a Bachelor's Degree, after double majoring in K-6 Elementary Education and English. I have 3 amazing sons; Justin, Christopher, and Chase who are all grown up, married and are fathers! I have 6 beautiful grandchildren who are the "apples of my eye!" My husband, Darrell and I live with our faithful companion, Rusty (a labradoodle). I am very blessed to still have my 90 year old mother, who attended Oak Ridge Elementary as a child! Oak Ridge holds a special place in my heart and is my home away from home for sure! My hobbies besides being with my family, include being in nature and enjoying its beauty. I love to learn in my spare time and have a keen interest in Science, basically all natural sciences related to the planet Earth.
