Meet Our Team
Mr. Brownlee began his work in education, working as a second grade teacher at New Hope Christian. During his time there, he realized his love for working with students who are considered unteachable. Because of that love, Terrence has worked in education for over eight years. In 2019, he earned his Master's degree in Education Administration and served as the Founding Middle School Principal at Leadership Prep for two years. Mr. Brownlee says, "I do this work because I want to change the narrative of young brown-skinned boys. I want to be about the change for the future of this world." Mr. Brownlee is married to his beautiful wife of ten plus years and together they are raising three handsome young men.

Dear East Academy Cougar Family,
As the principal of East Academy, I would like to welcome you all back to the 2023-24 school year. We are excited to have our scholars back in your school building and their energy filling our halls with enthusiasm. It is our mission to help every child feel welcomed and connected to our Cougar family. Additionally, we strive to have each scholar meet their academic goals and increase their capacity by the end of the school year. At East, we have great teachers who spend hours planning and creating classroom activities to engage our students in learning. Our teachers utilize research-based best practices and analyze academic data to determine current skill levels and to set goals for growth and improvement.
