Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Richard Brown
I graduated from the College of Wooster, Ohio with a B.A. in English literature. Although I then began graduate studies at the University of Chicago's Divinity School studying Sanskrit, I eventually earned my M.A. in Anthropology at the University of Colorado Boulder. I then advanced from doctoral student to Ph.D. candidacy in Anthropology and went to India to conduct ethnological fieldwork towards my dissertation. I remain ABD in Anthropology because I returned to the States earlier than originally planned and without enough data; I have never made it back to South Asia.
I am NH certified for secondary education in Social Studies. This is my 15th year at Alton Central School, where I love teaching my students.
