Shannon Brown to lead Liberty

MADISON – Shannon Brown, the new principal of Liberty Middle School, knows firsthand about the quality of the school’s teachers and staff.

“Liberty is near and dear to my heart because both of my children, Collin and Anna Katherine, attended this great school,” Brown said.

“My wife Michelle and I are forever grateful for the team at Liberty and the impact that they have had on our children,” he said. “I’m so excited to join Liberty’s amazing team to work together to take us to the next level.”

Brown started his career with Southern Academy and Greensboro High School as physical education teacher, head football coach and athletic director. He then taught PE and was head football coach at Bob Jones High School.

After leaving Bob Jones, Brown served in various leadership roles with Limestone County and Huntsville City school districts.

“I describe my teaching philosophy as doing whatever it takes to reach and educate all children,” Brown said. “I will expect all of my students at Liberty to be respectful, be on time and try.”

However, Brown promises leadership that is “firm, fair and consistent. I want all of our kids to work hard and do their best. They will hear me each and every day tell them to make sure they do something today that their future self will thank them for.”

“As educators, we can have a huge impact on children. However, many of my students and faculty have made a greater impact on me than they could have ever imagined,” Brown said.

Majoring in education, Brown earned a bachelor’s degree at the University of Alabama and a master’s degree from Tennessee State University in Nashville.

The Browns have lived in Madison since 2003. His wife Michelle is a registered nurse with Madison Surgery Center. Their son Collin, 18, is a senior at James Clemens High School. Daughter Anna Katherine, 15, is a James Clemens freshman.

The Browns are members of CrossPointe Church.

“I am an avid outdoorsman. I enjoy traveling from ballpark to ballpark watching Collin and Anna Katherine play the sports they love,” he said.
