Gene W. Brown Elementary

My name is Alyssa McAlister. This is my sixth year teaching special education and my third at Gene Brown. I previously taught in Metro Nashville Public Schools before moving to the Hendersonville area with my husband and our two dogs! I am originally from California, but moved out here to attend graduate school at Vanderbilt where I earned my M.Ed. in Special Education. I recently obtained my reading specialist credential from Lipscomb as well! In my spare time you can most likely find me with a book, eating with friends, dreaming about the ocean, or spending time with my pups!


Gene Brown Elementary is a collaborative learning environment committed to exemplary student, teacher, and community achievement. 


Gene Brown Elementary facilitates instructional leadership, resource management, and a culture devoted to consistent professional and student learning in order to grow and develop college and career ready scholars.
