• Hello! I am Dara Brown, and I have been teaching for 20 years. I have been at Utica for 3 years, and am currently teaching 7th and 8th grade English.  
     
    I am not a Mississippi native, but an Army Brat. I was born in Germany, and in my youth, I lived in various different states:  Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Kentucky, and  Texas.  By the time I graduated high school, I had been to 13 different schools!
