Hello. My name is Brenda Wideman. I am really looking forward to getting to know your child. I teach 6th-9th grade sciences. My “door” is always open to any questions, concerns, or suggestions you may have in regards to your child and their education. Please feel free to communicate with me as often as you like.
A little about myself… I grew up on a 400-acre farm about 30 miles northwest of Waco, Texas. I went to a small school, worked on the farm, and showed cattle through 4-H. Living on a farm helped foster my love for animals and sparked my curiosity in science. After high school, I attended Texas A&M University where I graduated with a degree in Animal Science through the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. I also completed courses towards my teaching certification in agriculture sciences.
After graduating from Texas A&M, I spent three years working in the cattle industry, specifically in the areas of reproductive physiology, embryo transfer, and in vitro fertilization. I loved my job and the travel that came with it. Then I met my husband, Dean, and we eventually moved back to San Antonio where he started his own forensic consulting business and I became the Laboratory Administrator for a consortium of human pathology laboratories.
Dean and I have two beautiful daughters, Ally (3rd grade) and Kailey (K5). We also have a bulldog named Bruiser, an orange tabby cat named Amos, and two cuddly hamsters named Cutie and Rocky.
