Debbie Brenner

Hello! Before moving here in 2019, I lived in Santa Clarita, California for 35 years. I am thrilled to join the faculty at New Century Technology High School.

My husband is a mechanical engineer, and we have three children: my oldest son is married and serving in the military, and my younger two children are in college. When I am not working, I am tending to my garden, prowling through thrift stores for vintage fashions, or tweaking Excel spreadsheets (I really do love spreadsheets).

I teach because I love connecting with students and giving them the tools to identify opportunity, work with perseverance, communicate effectively, and work collaboratively. Science is a wonderful playground in which to practice those lifelong skills, which will serve my students well no matter what careers or endeavors they pursue.
