About Teresa Brown

Teresa Brown became superintendent on December 6, 2016, appointed by the Jennings County Board of School trustees. She has 32 years of experience in the field of education.  

Prior to this position, she served as the assistant superintendent of school improvement with the Indiana Department of Education. Teresa created the Outreach Division of School Improvement and hired staff to provide grassroots support to local schools and districts. Under Teresa’s leadership, the IDOE outreach team assisted 155 schools in improving student achievement and moving from an accountability grade of D or F to an A, B, or C.

Teresa has been a strong advocate for shared decision-making, collaborative partnerships, and high-quality professional development. During Teresa’s tenure as principal of Mill Creek East Elementary, the school was one of two in the state named a gold star school for professional development. Teresa has presented at many national and statewide conferences on Systems to Support Schools, Maximizing Resources in an Organization, Creating Professional Learning Communities, and Closing the Achievement Gap. She also co-authored an article to assist school leaders: Decker, J., Brown, T. & Eckes, S. (2017). Student substance abuse and dependency: Legal and ethical responsibilities.

Before working at the state, Teresa served for 20 years as an elementary and middle school principal in several different school corporations in Indiana and Florida, and specialized in working with schools needing transformation. Teresa also taught students at the elementary and middle levels.

Teresa has a BA from Franklin College, a master’s degree from Butler University, and an Ed. S from Indiana State University.  She is also a doctoral candidate at Indiana University. 

The Jennings County School Corporation serves approximately 4,200 students as the only public school in Jennings County. Jennings County has over 27,600 residents living within 376.60 square miles. Jennings County is located approximately one hour from Indianapolis, Louisville, and Cincinnati, which makes it convenient for community members to live in a small community, with the convenience of large neighboring cities. 

Teresa and her husband, Lee, and son, Max, live in Paris Crossing in Jennings County. Max attends Jennings County High School. The Browns are enjoying the many opportunities available in Jennings County. Teresa said, “The people in Jennings County are kind and have made us feel at home. Jennings County is a great place to work, live, and receive a high-quality education. We are thrilled to be a part of this community.”
