Hi my name is Virginia Braggs and I am a 4th grade teacher at Knapp Elementary!
I am very excited to be part of this amazing school and community! I moved here to Michigan City in June and am enjoying the beautiful city and weather this summer! I am originally from LaPorte and grew up there with a family of teachers, coaches and administrators in my family!
I moved to South Bend in middle school and graduated from Riley HS in South Bend. I went to college at Purdue University and finished my degree at the University of Texas at Austin. I lived in the Austin, TX area prior to moving back "home" and loved the hill country of Texas as my second home! I taught 1st grade and 3rd grade for the past 15 years in the Austin area and have so many lasting memories of my time teaching there.
I have 3 grown sons, Jason, Joshua and Brandon whom I am so very proud of! My fur babies, are 2 cute Maltese dogs Prince and Gigi and they are father and daughter! I also have 2 cute cats, Max and Stella and they are brother and sister!
I love gardening, cooking, reading, travel and antique shops!
I am looking forward to be a part of your child's learning journey this school year!
