Mrs. Tonya James

Hello! Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I am so excited to begin my second year of teaching here at Broad Run! This truly is a great school with great students, faculty, staff, and administration! As some of you are already aware, I began my career in Maryland in 2003 at the smallest school in the state of Maryland. I was a business teacher at Hancock High School for 10 years. In 2010, I transferred to the largest school in Washington County, Maryland, South Hagerstown High School. I was the Instructor/Coordinator of the Teacher Academy of Maryland as well as taught several business classes. Lastly, I spent my last year in Washington County at Clear Spring Middle School teaching Technology Education to grades 6-8. 

As for my personal life, I was born and raised in Cumberland, Maryland. I attended Fort Hill High School--GO BIG RED! I graduated in 1998. I attended Allegany College of Maryland from 1998-2000 where I received my Associate's degree in Business Education. I immediately transferred to Frostburg State University in Frostburg, MD where I graduated in May 2002 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Education. I then immediately began my master's education journey at Indiana University of Pennsylvania where I graduated in May 2003 with a Master of Education in Business/Workforce Development. I currently live in Berkeley Springs, WV and am married to my high school sweetheart. We have 3 beautiful children--2 boys and a girl--ages 3 1/2, 7 1/2, and 10. 

I am looking forward to a great year! I am also extremely excited to build our new Cyber Security program here. If you need anything, please do not hesitate to contact me at or call the school during my planning periods which are period 1 and period 6. Thanks and GO SPARTANS!
