Joshua A. Brown
Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I am Joshua Brown, a math teacher here at RHS. I am teaching Algebra 1 part 1, Algebra 1, and Algebraic Functions and Data analysis (AFDA) this year, and I could not be more excited about it.
I have been in education in some form or another since 2007, serving as a teacher at the R.O.C.K. club, substitute teacher, bus aide, bus driver, lunch aide, instructional assistant, special education paraprofessional, special education teacher, and now a math teacher. I am also currently an assistant coach for Radford's 8th grade football team (Go Bobcats!)
I committed to graduate from college in general in 2000, and through a long and winding road that traversed through 4 different colleges, I graduated from Liberty University in 2012, and then earned my master's degree just a year later in 2013. Being in education for me is a privilege and a responsibility that I do not take lightly, as I have the opportunity to help our students understand who they are and what they can do. I do want to quote the late and great(est of all time, but we can argue that point later) Bill Russell who said:
Learning is a daily experience and a lifetime mission. I truly believe in the saying "We work to become, not to acquire"
Through my classes, I hope to instill that attitude and the accompanying resilience it takes to endeavor in this mission. I live in Radford, I love Radford, and I'm excited for us all to grow not just as individuals, but as an entire community. Let's have a great year!
