Mrs. Stanley grew up in the Lynchburg area and attended Concord Elementary School in Campbell County. She graduated from Rustburg High School in 2004. Brooke then enrolled at Longwood University, where she received her B.S. in Elementary Education (Pre-K-6) in 2008. In 2010, Brooke married her husband, Brandon, and in 2013 they welcomed their son, Camden. He definitely keeps them active and on their toes!
Brooke joined James River's lower school teaching team as a fourth grade teacher in the fall of 2018. She began her teaching career at Leesville Road Elementary School. Mrs. Stanley taught there for ten years: she taught second grade for two years, third grade for a year, and fourth grade for seven years.
Brooke absolutely loves being at James River Day School! The community, administrators, colleagues, and students have all been so welcoming, supportive, and kind; she couldn’t have asked for a better transition!
Outside of teaching, Mrs. Stanley enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She also enjoys going camping, spending time outdoors, and running. Brooke resides in Forest with her husband and son.
