    A little about me:
    Broad Run has always been home to me.  I am one of nine siblings who attended and graduated.  My husband is even an alumni.  I have had 3 nephews to graduate and my niece will graduate this year.  I started my secondary education at Longwood University, where I played soccer.  I loved my time here but felt like I needed a larger school and finished at James Madison University.  I did not play varisty soccer for JMU but filled my time with tutoring middleschool and highschool math students, being a camp councelor during the summer at Camp Thunderbird in SC, coaching the swim special olympics team, and traveling when I could.  After college I came back to Broad Run to start my teaching career and I haven't left.  I am in my 17th year of teaching and couldn't see myself any other place.  I have five daughters, one dog, and a few fish at home, so I keep myself busy when not in school.  I still enjoy watching soccer, but prefer cooking and biking these days.  I am excited for another year at my second home and look forward to what it brings.
