Teacher Spotlight: Mrs. Brenda Sweetser
Meet Our Staff
How long and what grades have you taught?
This is my 13th year teaching. I taught third grade at Hannum School for 10 years. I quit when I had my second child and stayed home for several years. I returned to our district three years ago. I taught kindergarten my first year here at Hometown. Then I moved up last year to first grade and I am currently still in first grade.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why?
My family is working on hitting all 50 states by the time I turn 50. I have a love for traveling and have been lucky enough to hit almost all 50 in my lifetime. Now I want to share that love with my kids. We are currently at 26 states and counting.
What is the best thing about working at Hometown?
I love that we are an inclusive school that houses the CASE program. The highlight of my week is when the CASE kiddos bring me my coffee on their cart. To see our students interacting together is the most amazing sight. We are teaching our students that everyone is special and unique.
What is your favorite food?
Donuts!! We are a donut loving family who prides themselves on finding the best of the best in every city we go to. Red Velvet is my favorite donut of all time!
Who is someone you admire and why?
I admire my husband. He has worked so very hard these last years so that I could stay home. It was not easy, but he never complained. He worked long hours and late nights. When he did have a free moment, he gave up it all to coach our kids in every sport possible. He is the kindest, most patient person in the world and makes us all laugh! He's a giant child!
If you see Mrs. Sweetser around our school make sure you say hello!!!

Mrs. Sweetser finally caved last year and bought her kiddos a mini golden doodle named Holland. He's named after the city where her and her husband met.
