Welcome to the Wonderful World of First Grade!

By Brenda Yohnka

August 12, 2018


Hello! My name is Brenda Yohnka and I have been teaching first grade at Chebanse Grade School for thirteen years.  Central School District #4 is a great place for your child to learn.  I attended Clifton Grade School as a child and my husband and children attended Chebanse Grade School.  We are all graduates of Central High School.  I received my bachelor's degree from Illinois State University and my master's degree from Olivet Nazarene University.

I live in Clifton with my husband Greg and our two dogs, Rocko and Louie.  Our son Austin lives in Chebanse with his dog, Palin, and our daughter and son-in-law, Elizabeth and David, live in Clifton with their dogs, Copper and Wrigley, and cat, Clark.  As you can see, we are an animal loving family (and big Cubs fans!)  I also love to read, shop, travel, cook, and bake.  

I am looking forward to a great school year...first grade is exciting and we learn so many new things!  I hope to see you at our open house on Wednesday, August 15, from 5:30 - 7:00.
