    My name is Veronica Brand or to students, Coach Brand.  I am a former collegiate athlete.  I attended the University of Minnesota on a softball scholarship and graduated with a B.S. in Kinesiology.  After college I returned home to beautiful San Diego, where I obtained my teaching credential and master's degree. I began my teaching career in the La Mesa-Spring Valley School District.  There I taught physical education for 7 years.  In 2014, I joined the Del Mar Union School District.  This will be my 11th year of teaching, 4th year at Carmel Del Mar.   I am so thankful to be a part of the Del Mar Union School District and CDM family, it is truly the school with the heart.
