  • This final 9 weeks of 2019-2020 school year is full of new learning curves.  You as a student are going to have to ask questions and listen to answers from adults on what is required from you.  We adults are also learning new ways to teach and help you learn.  Please feel free to ask; but understand we may not have all of the answers when you ask but will seek and learn with you.


    Marion County Public Schools may record online classroom sessions utilizing third-party platforms (Zoom, Google Classroom, etc.).  These recordings will only be used for educational purposes and may be shared on other learning platforms.  If you do not want your child’s image or identifying information recorded, utilize your device/platform controls to stop the camera feed from your device.

Ms. Brenda petkanics

I am a 28 year veteran of Teaching.  I have taught preschool up to graduating seniors in various settings here in Florida and in Illinois.  I have also taught at the college level for pre-teacher education.

I am a single mother of two children and so I know the joys of juggling home and work life and trying to be the best parent I can be and best teacher for the students I get to guide during each school year.  Each year brings a new special feeling of awe and wonder as I watch my students blossom and grow and get to see former students make the growth needed to be successful in middle school.
