Madison Brown joined the Read Charlotte team in June of 2019. Madison is native to Charlotte and is a proud alumna of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. Madison joins the team after successfully leading her first grade students in the classroom and holding leadership roles within her school. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Appalachian State University. Madison is grateful to be in a position to unite the Charlotte community around early literacy. She lives in Charlotte with her husband, Russell, their two daughters, and their dog, Boone. Madison’s favorite childhood book was Madeline and she recalls memorizing the story at a young age and “reading” it aloud to her mom each night.
