I was born and raised in Colorado despite everyone else in my family is from Wisconsin. I moved away for college but moved back because there is no better place than Colorado. I’ve been married for 14 years to a wonderful man and we have two kids, ages 9 and 11. Working with kids of all ages has been my passion for 15 years now and I am so excited to get to know all the students and staff at SVA. Being in a school is my happy place. I love summer with its hiking, traveling, BBQ’s and concerts. I love winter for the cozy food, books, and snuggling under a blanket with my family watching movies.

Hello SVA community. I am entering my 8th year at SVA, and my 11th year teaching overall. My first 7 years at SVA were spent teaching 8th grade history. I loved teaching history. I am excited to enter a new role as MS Dean and leadership teacher. This is an exciting change and I look forward to serving the community, students, and teachers.
My wife also teaches in the middle school, and my son is in 2nd grade at SVA. So, I am very invested in the growth and success of SVA.
I love the outdoors and sports. I spend most of my summer camping and fishing. I am also an avid reader and I love movies.

Hi! I’m Alicia Brackney. I’ve been teaching in the Denver area since 2016 after marrying a wonderful Denver native who is also a teacher.

As for my education and experience, I have a BA in Psychology and a MA in ELL. During the past decade, I have had the privilege of teaching 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and ELL.
