Introducing Dr. Brown


I’m Tim Brown and I am the principal.  Here are some fun facts about me.

  •           Am the youngest of five kids
  •           Was born and raised in Minnesota
  •            Am a member of the White Earth Band of Ojibwe (my mom was Ojibwe and my dad was Norwegian – I say I’m ‘Ojibwegian')
  •           Have three children; all have attended Rush Creek
  •           Am an artist (I do photography and graphic design when I have the time)
  •           Earned my BA from the U of M, M. Ed from Penn State, and my Ed. D. from the University of St. Thomas
  •           Like old cars
  •           Am allergic to shellfish
  •           Can play drums and piano
  •           Began my career 21 years ago as a special education teacher 

You can rest assured, that when students leave this school, they have the confidence, courage and competence to achieve their dreams, contribute to community and engage in a lifetime of learning.  My job is to ensure that every single person at Rush Creek inspires and prepares your child to do these very things, every single day.
