October 23, 2020
By Jenny Peel

Meet Mr. Brenner - 6th Grade Teacher

What inspired you to teach? 
Who - Mrs. Hawkings, Mr. Cox, Mr. Gerrick
Why - A combination of the general mantras that "with knowledge comes power" and "with great power comes great responsibility."
 
What do you love about teaching at SPES? 
The Christian atmosphere and the attentiveness of the students.
 
Beyond your subject-area or discipline, what do you hope students gain from being in your classroom? 
Mental agility, emotional maturity, and the ability to have personal insight.
 
Tell us a fun or interesting fact about yourself! 
I can freehand draw the world map from memory (to a reasonable degree of accuracy)!
 
What is your favorite book and why? 
Catcher in the Rye
The unabashed reveling in the general malaise of teen angst...
 
If you could have dinner with three people, alive or not, who would they be and why?
My Grandfathers and my son.
-or-
Jesus - one on one
-then-
Diogenes, Gandhi, and Lincoln.
 
(I'm assuming that Jesus and Diogenes would be speaking in English...  :)  )
