As a teacher of a variety of grades and subjects over the past 22 years, Brenda LeMieux has been a role model and leader among the students and teachers in the Department for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing at the Montana School for the Deaf and Blind (MSDB). Through her teachings, which include deaf studies, she has given students pride in themselves and in their culture and is always accommodating to ensure growth in the students.
In addition to teaching, Brenda is the sponsor for the Jr. National Association for the Deaf and the Close-Up Government Studies Program at MSDB. She has also served as yearbook coordinator and sign language consultant for the "Expressions Of Silence" performance group. Brenda demonstrates professionalism and respect to all her students each and every day and works tirelessly to provide quality instruction.
Brenda is also an active, long-standing member of the Montana Association of the Deaf (MAD). She has served as Treasurer and Junior and Senior Trustee on the MAD Board and is on the Fundraising Committee for the 2012 MAD and MSDB Gala. She is an instructor for the Summer Camp for the Deaf, the President of Great Falls Club of the Deaf, member of Big Sky Recreation Association of the Deaf, and member of a local Bowling Committee.
As you can see, Brenda has boundless energy and enthusiasm for the work she does, all of which make it possible for her students and those around her to be as independent and successful as possible. We commend her for all her accomplishments and congratulate her for receiving the Hamilton Relay 2011 Deaf Community Leader Award.
