Hello, My name is Brenda Mingee and I am the new 7th & 8th grade resource teacher. I will be co-teaching Math and Science. Joining the Nash family is very exciting! There are so many positive things being done to help each of the students be successful. Together we can do great things!
I have been teaching for 10yrs. My experience has been at various grade levels in 3rd - 8th grades at St. John's Lutheran School, Buckley. My experience also includes special education in Fisher Grade School and Champaign Unit 4 School districts. I am a 1999 graduate of Illinois State University. Prior to teaching, I was a pediatric RN for 14 yrs. in the clinical setting.
My husband, John and I live in Buckley. We have three children. Our oldest daughter, Amber got married this summer. Her husband, David Cluver is in the USMC. They live in Hubert, NC. Our middle child, Zachary, entered his heavenly home on 9/11/04. Our youngest daughter, Kelsey is a senior at Christ Lutheran High School, Buckley.
When I am not at a basketball game, I enjoy scrapbooking, quilting, and reading. I also enjoy watching the St. Louis Cardinals and the Fighting Illini basketball team.
