RETIRED, but not Forgotten

Dr. David W. Brown has held the position of Vice President for Research and Technology (2010 school year) at the Charter School of Wilmington until that position became extinct, and is currently the Chair of the Computer Science Department.  Past positions have included Director of Technology, Computer Science Department Chair and Chief Operating Officer at the Maine School of Science and Mathematics; Coordinator of Computer Science at the Indiana Academy for Science, Mathematics, and Humanities; Coordinator of Science Education in a school district in Western Kansas, as well as classroom teaching positions in Chemistry, Physics, Research, Mathematics, and Computer Science.  He also held the post of the Director of the Ruth Lilly Science Center at Park Tudor High School in Indianapolis, IN (1996-98).

He has held Associate Professor rank at Kansas State University, Zayed University (Dubai, UAE), and the American University of Dubai.

Dr. Brown is known for his encouragement of research and co-authorships with high school students in national and international conferences and  Journals; and as having originated and implemented the first high-school chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) which set the precedent allowing other qualified high school programs to create their own chapters.  Since arriving in 2010, eight (8) papers have achieved publication status in International Conferences, blind and peer-reviewed, through Dr. Brown's efforts and HCI courses.

In 2011, Dr. Brown's accomplishments were highlighted by being selected as the Teacher Leader of the Year internationally by Tech and Learning Magazine.

Relative to grantsmanship, Dr. Brown has brought $75, 000.00 in outside funds to the school and specifically to the computer science department to fund a Computer Science Research Laboratory and to help fund an innovative curriculum that is continuing to find students majoring  in Computer Science as they exit The Charter School of Wilmington.
