    "I also went to Brenneman in the 60's and 70's when the school was new. I agree that the principal, Miss Sager was old, cruel and did not connect well with students. I had some great teachers, though and got an amazing education there. I went on to college, and am now an Art Teacher. Some of the teachers that made a big impact on me were Miss Brophy, Ms. Simmons, Miss McCune, Miss Nakagawa, Miss Crosby, Mrs. Borgminario, and Mr. Wilson (Gym Teacher) My older brother really connected with Mr. Levin. I also made some great friends while at Brenneman and still connect with some of them."

    "the new principal dosn't care about the childern at this school at all and i talk from experience i went there for eight years. the principal only has select favorites that arn't even good kids. i feel bad for the kids still going ther because the curriculum is lower than average and the children do not get any quality education."

    "I went there in the 60s for 7th and 8th grade the school was like brand new.My teacher was one of only a few male teachers his name was Mr Levin.He was hard core but very good,he was the science teacher.The principal was an old lady named Mrs Sager.She was mean,crule and what she did'nt know about kids was alot.Charles Manson wou'ld have been better then her.Have been looking for this teacher Mr.Levin to let him know his teachings realy payed off just like he said it would.He told me to stay in art,and i did.I have made a large fortune due to him.He was the only one that belived in me during a rough time in my life.My hats off to you william were ever you might be thx."

    "Joseph Brennemann Elementary School was progressing when Mr. Otis Dunson was the principal. The principal is very uninvolved with the students and parents. She brushes or dismisses parents as if they were children. She brags about her child going to a private school and how advanced her child is. The present principal is seldom in the school because she is concentrating on her doctorate degree. I know of a child (4th grader) that was sent to her office and the principal did not let the child eat lunch, and she made the child stand up the whole time the child was in the principal's office. I have called the superintendent of our school district but I think the two of them are buddies. When I was attending the LSC meetings, I was overlooked by most of the members including the principal, when I voiced my concerns via questions. I pray that the Lord will remove this principal out of the children's lives and replace her with a caring principal that does REALLY care about the success of the children...and why wouldn't he or she. The children attending this school are reflections of the educators who are to mold and shape the children's live, preparing for the future."
