While attending Brownstown Central High School, most teachers tried to connect their lessons to their students in a personal way. Some English teachers incorporated music into their lesson plans, whereas the foreign language allowed each student to tell them what they did that day in a different language.
I spent my whole life in Brownstowns school systems and some of the many things I enjoyed is all the teacher truly cared about each of every student in the classrooms and outside of the classrooms, many of the teachers were also coaches in sports so that also helped contribute to the close bonds many students had. Brownstown was a smaller school which personally made learning easier for me in that setting.
