Congratulations to Sunol Glen School's Nancy Brazil
for winning our districts prestigious Teacher of the Year Award.
Nancy's was honored at an awards ceremony held at Chabot College
on November 3 along with 14 other teachers representing all
the school districts in Alameda County.
Referred to Sunol Glen School by friend and fellow teacher
Becky Radulovich, Nancy began her teaching career at Sunol as
a substitute teacher in 1995. She taught half-time in 1999 and
began a full time tenure in 2000. "Braaaz" as her
students lovingly call her, has taught fifth, sixth, seventh
and eighth grade. She says: "I really love teaching the
upper grades". Nancy is currently teaching eighth grade
language arts and social studies, sixth grade science, fifth
grade language arts and student council leadership.
Nancy said, "Sunol is like home to me. It just really
provides an environment where you feel valued not only by the
students and parents but also the staff. It's a school that
is unique because it has somehow been able to maintain that
small town closeness that so many school don't have".
"I love Sunol kids, they are just genuine. Another thing
about Sunol is that we also have a genuine interest in our kids.
We nurture the whole child; their sprit and their academic side".
Nancy makes her home in Pleasanton with husband Larry Brazil
and their children, daughters Chelsea, a Foothill High senior;
Maddie a Foothill High junior; and son Andrew, an eighth grade
student at Hart Middle School.
