Hello!   My name is Sharon Brown and I am the new Mental Health Counselor for Ridgway Schools.  Some of you might know me as Xander and Orion’s mom, who will be 4thgraders a RES,or have seen me walking our three-legged dog , Lukai, around town.

When not at work, I feed my soul by spending time with my            husband, our children and our dog.  We all enjoy time together in the great outdoors that surround us; from rafting in the rivers, to hiking in the mountains, to biking in the desert.  

Our family has called Ridgway home for the past seven years, during which time I worked as a School Counselor at Pomona Elementary in Montrose helping to develop MCSD’s elementary counseling program.  Before we moved to Ridgway, I taught college success, math support, and outdoor leadership classes and was an academic advisor at San Juan College in Farmington, NM for eight years.   I also had the pleasure of serving middle and high school students, as well as their families, from the Navajo and Ute reservations for many before that.  

 I have taught, counseled, helped, and volunteered with students from preschool through college during my more than 25 years in education, and look forward to bringing my experience to Ridgway schools. I am very excited to have this opportunity to work with and learn from all the students, parents, teachers and staff in Ridgway!
