    Mrs. El Brown - Army Spouse of the Year

    in Military

    A little bit about Mrs. El Brown:
    My name is El Brown and I am an Army Spouse and the creator of KinderJam®, a kinesthetic and tactile preschool learning program designed for military families.  I hold a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and recently earned, with the assistance of MyCAA, a Masters of Science in Early Childhood Education.  Prior to leaving the traditional classroom setting, I served as an Elementary and Early Childhood Educator in both the United States and Department of Defense Dependent Schools (DoDDS) on military installations in Yokosuka, Japan and Seoul, South Korea, for nearly a decade.  While serving Military students in Korea, I met and married a Soldier.  Some years later, my life was further enriched by the birth of our son.  After becoming a Military spouse and mom, I made it my personal and professional goal to advocate and provide enrichment for Early Childhood Education and Military children.  Being an Army wife, I understand the unique needs of families that proudly serve our country.  With this knowledge, I sought to develop a program that would empower military spouses by providing them with a completely mobile career option, while enriching the lives of the young learners in our community.
