Mrs. Ellen Bradley

Greetings my name is Ellen Bradley and I’ve had the pleasure of teaching Cosmetology for 27 years.  I grew up in North Carolina and moved to Texas many years ago.  I’m a graduate of Atlantic Beauty College, Durham, North Carolina, I received my teacher certification through Texas State University formerly Southwest Texas State University.   I am a former salon business owner in San Antonio.


Prior to joining Veterans Memorial High School, I taught cosmetology in San Antonio Independent School District (SAISD) for many years where under my leadership numerous students achieved licensure upon graduation.  This year I’m excited to start my fifth year at Veterans Memorial High School, teaching Cosmetology II Extended Lab 12th grade  (Go Seniors).  Additionally, I am the co-advisor for Cosmetology Skills USA chapter at Veterans Memorial High School.   


I’ve been happily married to my husband Frederick, United States Air Force Retired; we have one son Michael currently a Junior at Mercyhurst University in Erie Pennsylvania. Go Lakers!


 I enjoy traveling, spending quality time with my husband and watching our son play basketball.  I also enjoy watching my favorite team San Antonio Spurs play.  Go Spurs Go! 


I’m looking forward to meeting my students and I’m excited about this school year.  Go Patriots!
