Mrs. Brower

Welcome to Carpenter School!  I am a 4th generation born and raised in Ann Arbor.   I attended the Ann Arbor Public Schools at Haisley Elementary, Forsythe Middle School and Pioneer High School.  I continued at Eastern Michigan University, where I earned an undergraduate and graduate degree, along with +30 credit hours from various colleges and universities.  I am currently starting my 26th year at Carpenter School, or my 29th year in the district.  I am married to my wonderful husband, Mike.  We have 2 sheltie dogs, Casey and Cody, who take up much of our free time.  I also have 2 stepsons.  Jamie lives and works in the area.  Michael is currently serving in the U.S. Air Force and will be stationed in South Korea from October 2019-October 2020.  He is married to Melissa.  They have blessed us with two of the most special gifts:  granddaughter Kennedy 5 1/2 years and starting kindergarten in the fall, and grandson Mason will turn 4 years old in October.   While Michael is overseas, Melissa and the kids have moved back to Michigan, making it a lot easier for family time and visits!
