Brenda has been sharing her love of learning across the nation since 2005, working for schools in New Jersey, Los Angeles and now Seattle. She graduated from the University of Southern California with a B.A. in Psychology and earned her M.A. degree in Public Policy and Education Leadership at Rutgers University in 2008 while participating in the Teach For America 2005 Corps. When she’s not running down Alki Beach with her dog or reading novels in the sunshine, you can usually find her eating sushi and planning her November 2012 wedding!
