Currently, Brown-Cook is a teacher of American literature and a writer’s workshop at Carver School of the Arts. She considers herself an instructional strategist, one who constantly seeks innovative ways to involve students in the learning process. Her non-traditional teaching strategies motivate students to make steady progress over the years.

As a teacher, Brown-Cook believes that a team approach is the best strategy to improve student performance. Her goal is to develop students into critical and independent thinkers. She often says, “Our children are our greatest investment. Let us deposit our manpower, time, and money to receive a great profit.”
