Mrs. Bethany M. Brown

Hi! Welcome to my about me page (: I am Mrs. Brown.

I attended Lexington Richland 5 Schools, including Dutch Fork Middle School! I graduated from Winthrop University with my Bachelors in Art Education K-12! I have a cat named Tonks, a dog named Cola, and a husband named Wesley (: I love painting, drawing, music, cooking, going to the zoo, and traveling with friends/family!


This is now my 4th year teaching at DFMS and my 7th year of teaching! Normally I teach 7th Grade Art, 7th Grade Honors Art, and 2-D Design, which is offered to both 7th and 8th graders.


This year looks a little different due to COVID-19. I will be teaching at FiVE:


What is FiVE? Flexible Innovative Virtual Education - School District Five’s Flexible Innovative Virtual Education (FIVE) is a new virtual academy for Kindergarten through 12th grade students, providing a comprehensive online educational program where they receive rigorous academic instruction and social/emotional guidance provided by our own School District Five educators. This option will include live classroom instruction with School District Five teachers, along with independent work and activities for students.

What classes will I be teaching? - I will be teaching Art 6, Art 7, and Art 8 - If schools return to normal next semester classes may be subject to change.

The only students in my class will be ALL virtual students who are enrolled in FiVE academy - Please see my other tabs for more information if you are currently enrolled in one of my classes at FiVE.  


Everything with FiVE is still very new and there are many unknowns at this time. I will update all information as soon as possible!
