Gene W. Brown Elementary
Mary Herndon
CDC Teacher

My name is Mary Herndon and this is my second year as the CDC Teacher at Gene Brown and my 9th year as a teacher overall. I have my Bachelor's in Science from Vanderbilt University, double majoring in Special Education and Human and Organizational Development. I also completed a Master's in Special Education from Vanderbilt. I taught in various Special Education classrooms and settings in North Carolina and Texas, before returning to Tennessee. When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy traveling, trying new restaurants, and spending time with my family and friends.
