Mrs. Beverly Pruzina

Hi! I'm Beverly Pruzina, a Shenandoah University Career Switcher endorsed in Social Science, Theatre and English in the State of Virginia.  I also have a Bachelors of Communications from Temple University in Philadelphia.  I’m thrilled to be at Woodgrove High School, serving as the Theatre Director.  Prior to coming to the school in 2021, I taught for 4 years at Eagle Ridge MS in Ashburn where I piloted the Exploratory Dramatics Elective for LCPS beginning in 2018.  Before teaching,  I owned a franchised theatre business for 10 years and worked as a broadcast journalist on radio and television in Richmond, VA. In addition I have more than 20 years with work as a professional actor and theatre director.  I am honored to be here at Woodgrove and am looking forward to the curtain rising again for the community as we bring family-friendly community shows and intellectual showcases for our theatre community. As a proud wife and mother of a few LCPS students of my own, I love learning! My classroom specialty is using lessons to promote real life opportunities that will enhance self-esteem, confidence as well as respect for theatre and others.  In my spare time, you may see me riding horses or working on our little horse farm near the school.  Be sure to wave has you drive by!
