BA, Patrick Henry College
Leslie Brown graduated (magna cum laude) from Patrick Henry College in Spring 2012 with a B.A. in history. Though routinely enthralled by almost any period, culture, and location, her primary area of study is twentieth century American family history. Her senior thesis explored how American adults understood childhood in the 1950s, and how this affects Christian child-rearing advice today. She enjoys sharing a Biblical understanding of history with others, with the goal of infecting everyone with her own passion for the past and its stories. This will be her second year teaching U.S. History to PHC Prep Academy students.
Leslie spends significant amounts of time reading and writing, eclectically in both cases. Her reading list ranges from history and sociology to Russian literature and speculative fiction. She writes everything from academic studies and business letters to poetry and serial fiction. In the course of all this entanglement with words she has gained great appreciation for good writing, as well as a desire to use her writing and editing skills to help others become more proficient.
Leslie lives in northern Virginia, where she seeks to know her God and Savior more fully, and pursues her strangely varied interests—including not just reading and writing but also drawing, exploring back roads, and trying to teach herself to play the ukulele.
