Mrs. Ellen Bradley

Greetings my name is Ellen Bradley and I’ve had the pleasure of teaching Cosmetology for 24 years.  I grew up in North Carolina and moved to Texas 30 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 twenty-two years where under my leadership numerous students achieved licensure upon graduation.  This year I’m excited to start my third year at Veterans Memorial High School, teaching Introduction to Cosmetology, 10th grade and Cosmetology I, 11th grade.  Additionally, I am the co-advisor for Cosmetology Skills USA chapter at Veterans Memorial High School.   


I’ve been happily married to my husband Fredrick Bradley, United States Air Force Retired, for 22 years; we have one son Michael Benjamin who is a freshman at Mercyhurst University in

Erie Pennsylvania. 


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!
