Principal's Message

Welcome to Earle Brown Elementary

By Frannie Becquer, EB principal

Dear Earle Brown Students, Families and Community Members,

Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year.  I am Frannie Becquer, the new Principal of Earle Brown Elementary.  I come to Earle Brown Elementary from Robbinsdale Area Schools where I served as Assistant Principal at Robbinsdale Middle School for the last three years.  Prior to Robbinsdale I taught for 18 years with St. Paul Public Schools.  Coming to Earle Brown Elementary is a homecoming for me. During my 21 years in education 17 of them were at the elementary level. I taught across all levels from 1st grade to 6th grade.  I have always said,  “The grade level doesn’t matter—I just want to teach kids”. 

First and foremost I am always a learner and learning new things. This summer I have enjoyed learning about Earle Brown Elementary and meeting many of the staff members. I have learned:

  • Earle Brown teachers and families are very proud of Brooklyn Center Schools and Earle Brown.
  • Earle Brown teachers are a family and work hard everyday to create a wonderfully safe and caring environment for our students.

I am excited to continue to learn about the Earle Brown community and meet families and students as the school year begins. 

As I continue in the role of lead learner at Earle Brown, I am committed to affirming and challenging every member of the community to create an environment where all members are inspired to fearlessly advocate and contribute to the academic growth of every student, and to help shape students to fulfill the vision of Brooklyn Center schools, which is to “Achieve academic Excellence and become positive citizens”

Behind this commitment are three beliefs that always guide my thinking and actions:

  1. We do not know the limits of any individual’s learning capacity.
  2. Every single one of us can always learn more.
  3. Every student benefits from an education focused on high intellectual performance.

With this commitment and mindset I look forward to the amazing year of learning ahead of us.

Go future Centaurs!!!!!

During these lessons, students learn the fundamentals of best strategies and tactics, as well as how the thinking skills of chess can be applied to other areas of their lives.
