A little about Ms. Brenda   Hello my name is Brenda Steidel. I’m 42 years old and I live in St. Joseph, Mo. I have four wonderful children; Kaliey, John, Jack, and Jeremiah. And a grandson too! All have unique personalities.   I have many years of teaching education. I have always had a desire to teach children and show them that everyone can get an education. I was a substitute teacher for the St. Joseph school district for 9+ years. I took a para position in January till the end of the school year. I'm working with special needs preschool students. I'm in the process of reopening my preschool this fall. My preschool is "Bursting with Care". My motto is – “At the end of every rainbow there is a pot of success Bursting with Care”. Children bring new challenges and adventures to my facility every day which makes Read more me smile and laugh a lot! I love watching all children grow, learn, and develop into their own talented individual. I have always wanted to help teach children new ideas and guide them along their path. I watch children every day in their daily routines and I'm amazed at how they have different ways of coping with challenges I volunteer as a girl scout leader, play soccer, I help with dance, I zombie/kick box, take ball room dance classes, joined the American Women’s Business Association, volunteer at my kids schools, and I am very active in the community. If interested please give me a call 816 617 5471 and we can set up a time to meet and discuss childcare options. I will also be offering tutoring this summer. Thank you for your time and consideration, Brenda Steidel
