Catherine Browning

Mrs. Browning was born at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio when her father was in dental school there.  She is a Buckeye fan to this day.  Soon thereafter, her family moved to Dayton, Ohio, where she grew up.  She attended University of Richmond for undergraduate studies where she obtained a Bachelor of Arts in History in 1983.  After graduating from UR, Mrs. Browning worked in marketing and advertising for the Richmond Times-Dispatch and Style Weekly in Richmond, Virginia, and later, after marrying and moving to Loudoun, Leesburg Today (Loudoun Now).  

She left the workforce to raise her firstborn son, Benjamin, in 1994. Fourteen months later, her daughter Natalie was born. Both children attended Loudoun County schools from K-12, and after graduating from Woodgrove High School, they continued their academic careers at the University of Virginia.  When they were in middle school at Blue Ridge, Mrs. Browning went back to school to obtain her Masters degree in Secondary Education with a concentration in Social Studies from George Washington University. She graduated from GWU in 2012.

Mrs. Browning lived in Loudoun County (Hamilton and Round Hill) from 1989-2016, although she has now resides in Winchester.  In her spare time, Mrs. Browning likes to play tennis and golf, hike, bike, kayak, garden and read. She also loves her time in the classroom.  Teaching and helping children grow into healthy, well adjusted, compassionate and educated adults is her passion.

After 16 years of teaching 5th graders at Belmont Station Elementary School, I am excited to be joining the amazing faculty of Brambleton Middle School! I love reading and visiting historical sites and museums with my kids. I have played baseball my whole life but my body is giving me indications it may be time to stop.
