A Little Bit About Me

Brenda Brown AKA "The Bizzy Bee"

A little bit about me:  My name is Brenda R. Brown.  I am a proud wife, mother and educator.  In my personal life I celebrate my blended family with my husband, and 5 children (3 sons, 2 daughters) and we can’t forget the two fur babies.  I have been an educator working in the Special Education field for 18 years  and counting.   My mother and a host of excellent teachers inspired me to give back and become a teacher.  Other life experiences inspired my passion specifically for Special Education.


I attended Cleveland State University of Ohio and obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in U.S. History and Sociology.  I continued to obtain my Master of Education Degree in Curriculum and Instruction for k-12 Special Education.  After obtaining my teaching certification I began teaching with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, where I found my best experience serving as a teacher in a self-contained unit working with students with emotional/ behavioral disabilities.  While the position was challenging, it was a completely rewarding experience.  I am thankful to the CMSD system for providing  a great support structure, additional opportunities for relevant training, and wrap-around service providers from the PEP (Positive Education Program) who were knowledgeable and provided  some great collaborative opportunities to problem solve and provide quality education for students with emotional and behavioral issues. 


My journey did not stop there.  I have also had the opportunity to “take my talents to the sunshine state”  where I continue to work with students in need of additional support in an alternative setting. While it continues to be a rewarding experience, teaching following the time of Covid is very different and I see how the world of Education has been stretched to it’s limits.   Educator’s and families continue to  struggle to try to regain skills and knowledge that got lost in the shuffle, while all areas of society try to It is from that work and experience that I want to share my knowledge and experience with other teachers and provide them with a virtual community of resources, ideas, and proven practices to help them navigate today’s world of special education. 

Together we can find ways to reach them where they are and let their education soar to new heights!
