Mrs. Suzanne Brokenshaw
I have been teaching for the past 27 years. My first 13 years were spent at Foley Elementary where my 3 daughters, Victoria, Jillie and Ashley Brokenshaw attended school and graduated from Foley High School. I worked with AMSTI, USA for 6 years as a Math Specialist in the Baldwin, Mobile, Clarke, Monroe and Washington Counties. I returned to the classroom at Gulf Shores Elementary as a math coach. A year and 1/2 later I was given a wonderful opportunity to become a kindergarten teacher at Gulf Shores Elementary which is where I am now. I am highly qualified for grades K-3. I graduated from Mississippi State in December of 1980 with a degree in Child Development. I have lived in Gulf Shores for 35 years.
My husband is Hartly Brokenshaw who is the Fire Chief with the city of Gulf Shores. My oldest daughter, Victoria Roberson, teaches English and Reading at Gulf shores Middle School, My middle daughter, Jillie Prater, teaches high school math at Foley High School and is the varsity volleyball coach. This year both of these beautiful people dleivered babies on the same day at South Baldwin Hospital. Victoria had a daughter and Jillie had twins, a boy and a girl. Yep 3 grandbabies all in one day!!!! Now I have a total of 6 grandchildren. My son lives in Mississippi and has a beautiful daughter in the second grade. My youngest daughter Ashley just graduated from Auburn University in May and is teaching Business Education and Career Prep at Foley High School.
