Ms. Brenda
Lead Teacher
I live in Downs and love to spend time with my family and my two rescue pups. I have over 26 years of experience working with children, and I feel there is no better feeling then a huge hug from a child.  In my spare time, I am a photographer and I love to do crafts. I am a huge animal lover, but dogs take up the most room in my heart. I am super excited to be here and get to know the entire Little Jewels family.
