Gene W. Brown Elementary

My name is Haley Clemmons. This is my 4th year of teaching and also my 4th year of teaching 3rd grade at GBE. I graduated from Tennessee State University with my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education (K-5). My husband, Vance, and I married in 2019 and live in Portland, TN. We have a beautiful daughter named Emberley. I spend most of my free time kayaking and reading. The Harry Potter series is my favorite. I am also a die-hard Tennessee Vols football fan!
