Hello! My name is Tonya Brenner. I grew up in Golden Valley, North Dakota. I attended Dickinson State University and earned my degree in elementary education. I have taught in rural Alaska Eskimo villages, Wasilla Alaska, and in Wyoming before moving back to North Dakota. My experience ranges from kindergarten-5th grade, reading interventionist, reading/instructional coach, and basketball coach. While living in Alaska I received my Masters in Education. Last year I received my credentials in Educational Leadership through the University of North Dakota.

I am married and have two children, who are active in our school district. I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, gardening, and anything outdoors.

I am passionate about McVay and our progress moving forward. We would love for parents to be a part of the wonderful things we are doing at McVay. If you would like to be a part of the great changes we are making, please do not hesitate to reach out to myself or any school staff.

Looking forward to a great year!

It’s a Great Day to be a Mustang!
