MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — We met Toni Brown at Corpus Christi Catholic School in Mobile, where she teaches reading to children one on one.

It’s what she does in retirement. Her daughter, Elizabeth Brown, says Toni retired from full time teaching about five years ago from Mobile County Public Schools, then immediately began teaching children at the Archdiocese of Mobile. 

Toni says early in her career she was assigned a second-grade class, and she noticed something.

“And I just noticed that kids that could not read really struggled with every subject, even if they were good at math when we got to a reading problem they didn’t really understand what they had to do,” she said.

Our congratulations to Toni Brown and Corpus Christi Catholic School for a job well done.
