Steen, Brenda

Teacher Librarian

Books, books, books! They are what makes coming to school fun. Connecting students with the right book is very important to me. This is my 19th year as a teacher librarian, covering all grades at different times. Currently I have Preschool - 12th grade, so I am in all four district buildings making sure students have enjoyable & interesting books to read. I work with teachers to help locate resources as they study various topics, use online resources and follow copyright regulations.

Outside of school I am a voracious reader & a runner; my husband and I enjoy biking and our daily walks. We are very involved in our church and missions projects. Spending quality time with our three grown children and three grandchildren is one of our greatest joys.

This is my 4th year at Clear Lake as the high school counselor. I truly love my job! I enjoy working with students and helping them plan their future. Each day is different and exciting. I earned my Masters in School Counseling from Buena Vista University. As a counselor, I believe all students can succeed and have the potential for a bright future. Within my program I focus on three areas with all students: academic achievement, social/emotional development, and career/college readiness. When I am not at school, I am spending time with my husband, Ryne, and our two daughters, Emri & Maya.

Young, Megan

High School English; Middle School Second Chance Reading

I am a graduate of CLHS and I am thrilled to be working as a staff member now. Following my journey at CLHS, I attended the University of Iowa where I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Education and minors in Theatre Arts and Psychology. My husband and I moved to Hampton where I taught middle school. I came to Clear Lake in 2012 and began a new path of teaching in the high school. I am now certified to teach anything in the English/Language Arts curriculum K-12. I have taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade reading and PBL, English 1 and 2, Speech, High School Reading, and ELA credit recovery. I enjoy reading, playing word games, swimming, and scuba diving. I am an avid Hawkeye and Viking football fan. In my free time, I love to hang out with my boys. My oldest, Vincent, is in Kindergarten and my youngest, William, is 16 months old. My husband works for CL Tel and we are definitely deep-rooted Clear Lakers. My goal for all of my students is to see that there is so much more to school than just "sitting in class". Every day there is something new to learn, and there is always something more to do. Challenges are only obstacles waiting to be conquered. #BeGr8Today #LionStrong
