Brenda is a professor of English at McLennan Community College and has been an educator since 1982. She believes her life’s calling has been to motivate and inspire students to find purpose and fulfillment through the tool of education, particularly those from unconventional and underserved backgrounds. Frequently finding ways to connect her community college students to learning projects internationally, she has been a guest teacher in places from Kazakhstan to Kenya. The experiences and people she has encountered in her travels have also inspired much of her poetry.
