    Other Information
    My name is Mr. V and this is my second year at Broad Run High School. I relocated from the state of Florida, where I spent 5 years in education. I am excited to be at Broad Run and in Virginia. I am also super excited to have actual winter weather! Did you know that Florida is the only state that does not receive any regular dustings of snow or even winter weather?
    In my spare time, I enjoy snow skiing and I am also an adjunct instructor with the University of South Florida where I teach in the summer and occasionally during the school year. 
    • Students - Be sure to check Schoology on a regular basis. 
    • Parents - You have access to your student's Schoology and I encourage you to access it as well! If you need help, check out this page from LCPS.
