Dr. Brakeman holds a Ph.D., in Neuroscience from Johns Hopkins University. She has been one of the most beloved teachers at the prestigious Head Royce school since 1997.  While at Head-Royce, Dr. Brakeman has taught 9th grade physics, 11th grade Biology and AP Biology, 12th grade Neurobiology and 12th grade Molecular Genetics. She has also coached the swim team, advised and learned to play lacrosse on the girl's lacrosse club, been an active member/advisor of the student Green Team and the school's Green Council, leads the PE option called Boot Camp, and has been the Science Department Chair since the '08-'09 school year. She feels incredibly fortunate to be able to teach the subjects she has a passion for, to students who love to learn, in a supportive and creative environment. She is grateful that her two daughters, currently in Lower School at HRS, are developing into students who love to learn as well.
