Ms. Paige Brochu, a marine biologist, has begun teaching marine science at Fort Lauderdale High. She grew up in Virginia and moved south to attend graduate school at Coastal Carolina University in South Carolina and then to Florida to teach.
“I started as a marine biologist and decided I wanted to share my love of the ocean through education,” Ms. Brochu said. “I’m so happy I changed my path.”
In her eighth year of teaching, Ms. Brochu loves FLHS for its school pride and amazing teachers. In her spare time, she enjoys photography, crafting, and scuba diving.
Ms. Brochu has been getting used to online school and she’s starting to like it.
“I’m used to excited and rambunctious teenagers. The ‘quiet’ of a virtual classroom is so odd!” she shared.
