Welcome to Grant Elementary!  My name is Amy Brown, and I am delighted to introduce myself as the new principal at Grant Elementary.  This is my twenty-third year in the field of education and my second year as an administrator for Norfolk Public Schools.  My educational background includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary and Special Education, a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership.  I enjoyed serving twenty-one years as a classroom teacher and one year as the Assistant Principal at Norfolk Middle School. I continue to love working with students, parents, and staff to support growth and learning, and I look forward to serving Grant Elementary as your Principal. 

Parent involvement is essential to the success of our students. We encourage parents to visit our school, volunteer, communicate with teachers, and actively participate in the learning of your child.  We also invite all parents to be a part of our Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO).  Please stay informed about your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities.  Working as a team, we will be able to meet your child’s educational goals.

Thank you for the opportunity to work with you and your child.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.  I look forward to a very positive and productive year together.  


Mrs. Brown
