Brenda Ellis
5th Grade - 5D

I was born and raised in Osceola, Iowa. I graduated from Clarke Community Schools in 1982. I went to the University of Iowa for a year while I tried to decide what to do with my life. In 1983 I chose to major in education and transferred to Northwest Missouri State University, graduating in 1986. Amazingly, I chose a career path that I have enjoyed for over twenty years right back in my hometown.

My husband, Scott and I have raised our family nearby in Weldon, Iowa. We have two children who have graduated from Clarke, and a third who is presently in high school. I have loved watching my own children and former fifth graders participate in all sorts of events over the past several years.
