As we begin the year, I want to take the opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Jenny Brougham and I am the Physical Education teacher here at Palencia. Prior to teaching Palencia, I worked at Timberlin Creek, Julington Creek, and Durbin Creek Elemetary Schools. Before coming to St Johns County Schools, I worked at Bishop Kenny High School as a teacher and coach for 5 years. I currently also coach girls’ soccer at Mandarin High. Outside of school, I am married and have two boys, ages 11 and 6. My oldest, Jakob, will be a middle school student this year, and my youngest Lukas, will be a first grade student here at Palencia. I am looking forward to another fantastic year in Physical Education. GO PIRATES!
