Cattails (3 year old) Staff

Hi! My name is Julie Bragg and I have 27 years of teaching experience, as teaching is my passion. I was born and raised in Winchester, VA. I received a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education from Radford University and have since attended Shenandoah University, Lord Fairfax Community College, Eastern Mennonite University and George Mason University.

I began my teaching career as Director/Teacher at the Winchester Day Nursery. From there I accepted a Director/Teaching position at the Tot Spot Daycare and Preschool in Winchester and Middletown. In 1994 our family relocated to Harrisonburg, Va, where I worked as a teacher at the Bridgewater Preschool. In 1997, I assisted in Rockingham County Schools in grades K-4. In 2000, Page County Public Schools offered me a first grade teaching position. I accepted, and spent 10 years teaching kindergarten and first grade. It was terrific!!

My family is very important to me. My husband and I live in Broadway, VA. I have a daughter and son. My daughter and son-in-law have given us four beautiful grandchildren ages one to eight, who keep us very busy! My son is a sophomore in high school and an avid golfer! I am very proud of his accomplishments as he was chosen to play in the Virginia High School golf tournament this past fall.

Now I am proud to say I am employed by Pollywog Place, as teacher of the three year old “Cattails.” I look forward to helping your child learn and grow through many creative experiences and lots of fun!
