Sandra began her teaching career at Georgetown High School in Georgetown and later taught English and social studies in the Austin Independent School District until her retirement in June, 2004.

While writing is a challenge for many students, Mrs. Brown was able to effectively model for students how to master this difficult skill. When not working with the students that she thoroughly enjoyed, she loved traveling abroad. She was an avid reader and loved to read everything and anything--that was her way to travel without leaving home. She became a dedicated runner and jogger.
