Thirty years ago, Brenda Parker met her first deaf friends in college in Indiana. Learning sign language from her friends has given her an inside look at deaf culture & sign language. From Oklahoma City to Springfield, MO & Lancaster, SC. Everywhere she goes she seeks out deaf friends & they also find her at the public library.
Brenda taught elementary school for 10 years then started working in a Childrens Department at the public library. She loved it and finally found what she wanted to be when she grows up. A Childrens Librarian!! Shes been a Childrens Librarian now for 14 years. I hear she still hasnt grown up! ha!
She uses sign language in her storytimes at the public library & as she visit child care centers in her community.
She loves it when deaf friends come to the library to look her up. Shes stuck on the deaf!
Brenda has a B.S. in Elementary Education & a Masters Degree in Library & Information Science and in Early Childhood.
