Brenda is the youngest of 13 children. She has three beautiful daughters, one handsome son, and grandson; who are the light of her life. Brenda has an Associates Degree in Elementary Education. She was fascinated with teaching at an early age. As a child, she and Brenda’s friends would act as if we were students and Brenda always wanted to be the teacher. She had a chalkboard outside her house, and she would ask for the old chalk at school. Brenda loves her job at RE>Direct because she likes to teach the children and to see the smiles on their faces when they accomplish their homework assignments. RE>Direct also allows her to speak freely about the word of God, and teach them the importance of knowing Jesus. Lastly, Brenda believes that RE>Direct gives children the opportunity to experience activities that she has never seen at any other after-school program. It also helps to have such a pleasant work environment, it feels like a family.
