Meet Our Exceptional Team!

Empower Charter School teachers are highly qualified, credentialed, and bilingual in English and Spanish.


Demi Brown, Executive Director, Principal   Ron Roberts & Demi

Mrs. Demetria Brown is a native San Diegan who holds a Masters of Teaching with an Emphasis in Language Arts Instruction. Her teaching credentials include a Multiple Subject Clear Credential and Single Subject Authorization in English, and she has taught most grades from Kindergarten to Grade Eight throughout San Diego County.   Mrs. Brown founded Empower Charter School because she simply wanted a school like this to exist for her own children. Now that it does, she is excited to lead Empower through its formative years. In her spare time, Mrs. Brown enjoys spending time with her husband and staying active. Mrs. Brown was a recipient of the ING Unsung Heroes Award in 2014 and recognized for her leadership in biliteracy at the 2016 San Diego County Office of Education’s Annual Dual Language Symposium.
