Meet Jessica Brown, Principal

How are you involved in education?
I am a Principal at The Arts Academy at Benjamin Rush in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
What’s your ideal classroom or school like?
My ideal school is in development and I am proud to be a leader there! However, I do not have an unlimited budget or resources.
Schools should be a place where community inside and outside of school learn together and help each other. Resources should be abundant (an unlimited budget for technology and other resources).
Schools should be an extension of human curiosity and not a series of tasks. Learning should be authentic, and passion should drive students and teachers.
Have you ever attended an unconference before?
No, but I am looking forward to my first unconference. I LOVE that it’s an unconference.
If you were to lead a session at Edcamp, what would it be about?
My staff and I would lead a session about integrating the arts into curriculum as this is the vision at The Arts Academy at Benjamin Rush.
