This is my 6th year as the Principal of Brown-Barge Middle School.

I am very excited to be at Brown-Barge with all of the teachers, staff, students and parents.

Mrs. Lauri Jackson


Mrs. Jackson is in her fifth year as the Assistant Principal at Brown-Barge. Prior to being at BBMS she served as a District Instructional Coach at several middle and elementary schools. Much of Mrs. Jackson’s educational career was at Ransom Middle teaching science and sponsoring their Student Government, better known as the Student Leadership Team. She graduated from Indiana University “Go Hoosiers!” and received her Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from the University of West Florida.


She loves teaching students about leadership and watching them grow to be stronger and more confident. One of her favorite quotes is “Live the life you love, love the life you live.” Her loves: the Cincinnati Reds, running, walking on the beach, and spending time with her husband and three children.


Being at Brown-Barge and experiencing the Stream concept and lifelong learning has been inspirational. The atmosphere here is positive and motivating, and she is looking forward to the future at BBMS.
