Ms. Debra Pugh, English and Creative Writing Faculty

Ms. Debra Pugh is in her thirteenth year teaching English and Creative Writing at Hargrave. She is also the sponsor for the Live Action Role Playing (LARP) Club, where Cadets dress in costumes and physically portray their game characters. They also get to fight each other with foam swords!

Walking into Mrs. Pugh's classroom, you are greeted with a lava lamp, posters and signs covering almost all of the available surface and a (fake) medieval battle axe. You are also greeted by energetic students who are learning to produce good thoughts.

"It is OK for students to make mistakes, but we have to own our mistakes. I make mistakes all the time."

She earned her Masters Degree in American Literature at Radford College (now University) after a non traditional college career.

"I absolutely love my kids", she says referring to the Cadets. "Students often do not understand the impact they have on the faculty and staff."
