Hello There! I am super excited to be joining the Bear Family this year. I just moved down to Virginia from Kennett Square, Pennsylvania where I have been for the last 23 years.  This will be my first year teaching and I am eager to learn and grow alongside of this amazing Brambleton family. I am a huge traveler. I just recently spent my summer in Chiang Rai, Thailand teaching English to upper elementary and middle school students! I hope to spend each summer in a differnet country teaching! When I am not teaching you can find me with a cup of coffee reading or cuddling with one of my pups! I am looking forward to a great year!

This is my seventeenth year teaching!  I am so excited to be in the CTE domain this year!  

Here's a little about my educational background: 
I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Special Education from the Pennsylvania State University in 2003.  I taught high school and junior high school in PA for six years and then moved to California (my husband is a Marine).  My family and I lived in the desert near Twentynine Palms for nine years.  I taught at the elementary level (third through sixth) for eight years and earned my master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Western Governors University in 2016.  My husband retired from the military in 2017 and we moved to VA in 2018, where I began teaching at BAM.  

Here's a little about my life outside of the classroom: 
I have three kids, ages 16, 7, and 6.  I love to play board games with my kids and to do activities like bike riding and hiking.  I love coffee and reading books, as well.  If you ever see me at the grocery store, please feel free to say, "Hey!"

Ms. Creech is extremely excited to be teaching 8th grade language arts and specialized reading this year at Brambleton Middle School! This is her first-year teaching, but her third year at BAM! She was born in Charleston, South Carolina, one of her favorite vacation spots! Ms. Creech grew up in a military family and was privileged enough to live in seven different states, move 19 times, and go to three different middle schools!! It sounds crazy, but she says those are her most cherished childhood memories. Having traveled to every state but Hawaii, Ms. Creech feels that synergy and acceptance are vital to the creation of a successful community. With that being said, it is her hope that every student who walks through her door feels like their voice is heard and respected! She believes that all students should be celebrated and are capable of learning given the correct accommodations. Her goal is to ensure that each student knows how important they are and leaves Brambleton with the 21st century skills they need to be successful. She would love to see all of her students make meaningful contributions to the world. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call or email Ms. Creech.
