Dr. Sharla Brown

Curriculum Specialist for KnowItAll.org

Dr. Sharla Brown started her journey in education as a secondary education social studies teacher. She had the opportunity to teach in a single-gender magnet allowing her to see innovative solutions to educational challenges in person. Brown was inspired to pursue her Ph.D. in Social Foundations of Education while teaching. Afterward, she spent several years teaching in higher education and working with preservice social studies teachers. Brown decided to merge her passion for media and education and in 2017 joined the SCETV Education Department. In her tenure, she has provided digital educational resources for educators across South Carolina through KnowItAll.org, SCETV Teacher Recertification courses and has assisted with educational stories via the premiere program, Carolina Classrooms.
