Hello and welcome to Flomaton Elementary School!  My name is George Brown and I am proud to serve as principal of this outstanding school.  At Flomaton Elementary, we pride ourselves on a commitment to being the very best at all we do!  Hard work, respect, and integrity are traits we strive to instill in all our students at FES.  

I am a product of Flomaton having attended school here from grades k-12.  My grandfather, George A. Brown Sr. served as principal of Flomaton Elementary School from 1965-1986 and my grandmother, Alice Brown served as a teacher's aide for that same amount of time.  It's an honor to be able to serve in the same school as they once did.  While pursuing my bachelor's degree, I served as a grounds keeper for Escambia County Schools and also a part-time custodian at Flomaton Elementary School.  Upon graduation, I began my career in education as a special education teacher at Escambia County Middle School in 2000 and then transferred to Escambia County High in 2002 in the same capacity.  While teaching there, I coached JV boys basketball and was an assistant coach for the varsity baseball team.  While teaching at ECHS, I was allowed to serve as assistant football coach and head girls basketball coach at Flomaton High School.  I moved to the newly built Spanish Fort High School in 2005 when it opened its doors serving as a special education teacher, football coach and head girls basketball coach from 2005-2011.  During this time I was fortunate to be a part of multiple state championships.  During that stretch, I also served as girls golf coach, boys tennis coach, girls athletic director and academic advisor.  In 2011, I decided to give up athletics and focus on my pursuit of an administrative degree.  While doing so, I served as the special education department chair and also drove a bus route for two years.  I graduated from the University of South Alabama in 2013 with a degree in Educational Administration and became the assistant principal at SFHS in 2013.  I served in that capacity until my appointment as principal of Flomaton Elementary on July of 2018.  

I am married to the former Danielle Watson of Bay Minette and we have four children- Ryder (8), Bear (5), Story Jean (2), and Juniper Rae (1).  We attend City Hope Church in Malbis.  My hobbies include rucking (GORUCK), crossfit (Crossfit Spanish Fort) and anything that requires a little sweat and hard work! 

I am excited for the future of Flomaton Elementary.  Our staff will do our very best to give the children in Flomaton, AL an educational foundation that will provide them with the necessary tools to be successful in their chosen career endeavors while also being great parents and spouses as adults.
