Lynn Heintzman


Lynn Heintzman is the proud principal at Brown International.  Now in her third year, she comes to us with many years of experience as an English teacher, assistant principal, principal and most recently, Chief Academic Officer in a neighboring school district.  Ms. Heintzman chose Brown because there is a clear and deliberate focus on supporting the International Baccalaureate program and the opportunities for students at Brown to become global citizens who are committed and active learners, cooperative members of our society and curious risk-takers.  She works with all members of our community to increase parent and family support to ensure that each child comes to school on time, every day, ready to learn!
