Mr. Sterling Brown


Mr. Brown was born and raised in St. Paul and an alumnus of Como Elementary, he can truly say that he has gone full circle in his educational career. For the past 12 years, he has been heavily involved in the Saint Paul Community through volunteer coaching/mentoring as well as working with Saint Paul Public Schools as a Behavior Specialist. After obtaining his Master’s degree in Education from the University of St. Thomas, he is now spending his first year in the classroom. Mr. Brown appreciates having the opportunity to work with young men and women from similar backgrounds and family situations as his own.  Because of this commonality, he prides himself on being able to successfully reach some of our most challenging youth. He takes pride in standing by these three R’s:


  • Be Relevant
  • Be Responsive
  • Be Real


He is a strong believer in the inclusion of our community partners: parents, youth coaches, barbers, pastors, etc. Being able to work with our youth allows him to remain humble and realize how fortunate he is to be where he is today.  He is honored to help our youth reach their fullest potential.  Although it isn't always easy, he is a firm believer that working with youth requires skill, tenacity and an open-minded mentality and of course some perseverance; he is proud to say that he is helping build our future.
