Gene W. Brown Elementary


My name is Leah Gilchrist and I am currently in my eighteenth year of teaching. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education from Hanover College (Hanover, IN), where I was also a four-year, collegiate cross-country runner. I earned my Masters degree in Teaching and Learning, with an emphasis in Reading from Nova Southeastern University (FL), and I obtained an Instructional Coaching certificate from Lipscomb University as well. I am very thankful to be at Gene Brown, teaching third grade for nine years now. My husband and I have enjoyed living in Hendersonville since 2006, and are happily raising our two sons here.  In our free time, we enjoy boating, hiking, and all things sports!
