Brenda Sweat, Exceptional Teacher Assistant

I am originally from Hampton, Virginia but being a military child my father's final stay was Charleston, SC. I am a graduate of North Charleston High School and have started my 18th year. I hold a masters in Library Science from Drexel University and a dual masters in Computer Science and Web Design from Webster University with a minor in Human Resources. Being in the Special Needs department I am now pursuing my certification. I also drive the activity bus for any school in the district. My favorite area of NCHS is the chance to work with ALL the children and help them succeed and grow. I love each and everyone as if they were my own. I also have 2 handsome sons and a beautiful daughter in law. We are lifetime Soccer ticket holders, I love to spend time with family, the BEACH, and my sweet Shitzu Jackson. Waiting on the day I can move to the country.
