Brenda left a legacy of professionalism during her career as a music teacher at Alps Road Elementary. She believed in her students and provided structure as well as fun in the time each week that she spent with each class. She loved preparing them for performances. She was a comrade with all of the teachers and always had a smile on her face. Now she is singing with the angels!
