A John Adams Middle School teacher, Mr. John Brown, was recognized as a hometown hero by WSAZ for his work with children and adults in the community. Mr. Brown teaches a Tech Ed class above and beyond his regular science teaching responsibilities as well as running an after school program at the Oakwood Community Center in Charleston.
Mr. Brown offers tutoring in science for students, a Family Science program for 3rd to 9th graders, and tutoring for adults who need to take their GED in math or science. The Family Science program consists of a hands-on science demonstration as well as a take-home activity, which students can share with parents and siblings. There is no cost for these activities.
