About Michelle


A Heart for Teachers

 Michelle moved to Eastern North Carolina in 2005, and noticed that above all things, parents and teachers in this area have a heart for children. Michelle knows that teaching is a calling in which many people find themselves.  Her heart is to provide support for the parents and relatives who have helped their children struggling with homework as well as the home school parents and the many teachers who spend hours on end working with children. 

Mentoring, teaching, and providing for children can be exhausting, but it is many times more rewarding.  Michelle's goal is to encourage and support students, teachers, and parents through the daily details of teaching in order to glean the best from the journey.


Michelle's Story

Dr. Michelle Cetner Brown found her passion for teaching over 20 years ago, teaching karate classes at East Coast Black Belt Academy on Long Island.  She pursued  a degree in Math Education at New York University and taught in New York City for 2 years before moving with her daughter to North Carolina in 2005.

Michelle went on to teach high school math for 10 years.  She received her MA in Math Education and MS in Mathematics from East Carolina University in 2010.  She has taught a wide range of students at Washington HS, DH Conley HS, Greenville Learning Center, Christ Covenant School, Pitt Community College, and ECU.  

In 2017, Michelle earned her Ph. D. in Math Education from NC State. Her dissertation focus revolved around helping teachers to form interdisciplinary relationships, which in turn helps students to reach their maximum potential.  Michelle found that all people, teachers included, learn best when they build quality relationships with peers that they can trust.
