Mrs. Bratchie -Eighth Grade Science

I am excited to be teaching 8th grade science for the 2021-22 school year.  This is my fifth year teaching at UA, although I have been teaching for quite a while.  My daughter and son are in 11th and 8th grade here at UA.  I graduated from the University of Central Florida (go Knights!) with a BA in Communicative Disorders.  I did my additional classroom education classes at Florida Southern College.  When I'm not teaching, you can find me shuttling my children to baseball, swim, or cross country.  


My contact information is listed below.  The best way to reach me is via email.  I respond to all emails within (1) business day.
