Mrs. Deanna Varljen


Hello Panther Family,

I couldn’t be more excited to be part of the Lucille Murray Brown family.  I am looking forward to building relationships with students, families and staff while, together, we create a community of curious and reflective learners ready to succeed in careers and at the university level. This will be my 22nd year in the educational field. I have served at both elementary and middle school levels as a teacher, English department chair, instructional coach, and a grade level administrator as the dean of students.  

Aside from my career, I enjoy time with my family and friends, attending festivals especially around Richmond, and reading.  My husband and I share 5 mostly grown children and the sweetest reminder of the importance of the field of learning - our granddaughter- who blessed our family in November 2018 and is spectacular!

This is my life’s work. Every student has the right to a caring, exciting and high level learning experience, and it is our job as educators to make sure this is what is happening.  I love the work I get to do alongside you.


With Peace and Panther Pride,

Deanna Varljen
