Bronx 2017 Aja Brown accepts award Metrosound

Science teacher Aja Brown thanks the Milken Family Foundation for adding her to the Milken Educator family. "I am so happy to win this award," she says. "We work so hard...[and] I want to make sure my students have a good time doing it." Brown pores over assessments and data and uses them to plan her instruction. When data showed that her students learn best through listening and lab investigations, Brown introduced a unit on dissecting fetal pigs, gathering all the supplies and curriculum on her own (including a virtual dissection option for students who had ethical issues with dissection).
