Meet the Teacher:  Mrs. Karen Brennan
          Hello!  My name is Mrs. Karen Brennan and I am so happy to be your student's First Grade teacher! 
    I am originally from south of Pittsburgh, Waynesburg, PA, and came to Erie to attend Mercyhurst College, now Mercyhurst University.  I received my Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education, Newborn through Grade Three.  I also received my Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Gannon University.
        I am marreid to my wonderful husband and have 2 children. I enjoy teaching as well as singing and performing. I have performed in various musical productions at the Erie Playhouse, Station Dinner Theater, and the Riverside Inn.  I have sung the National Anthem for the Erie Seawolves and Erie Otters. I also had the opportunity to sing the National Anthem for the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Pittsburgh Pirates, and the Philadelphia Phillies. 
          This is my twentyth year of teaching. I have taught at Jefferson for 13 of those years and I could not be happier! I was also honored to be selected by the faculty as the Jefferson School 2012- 2013 Teacher of the Year! We have an amazing faculty and staff that makes Jefferson School the wonderful school that it is where, "Bronco's Bring their Best!"
