OAESD Program Administrator
My name is Jessica Brenden and I am the new Program Director for the Oregon Association of ESDs. In education, I have served as a paraprofessional in special education, a teacher in the public and private settings for elementary and middle levels, an instructional coach at the elementary level and most recently as an elementary school principal. I live in Mount Angel, I like spicy food, I am mother to three and wife to one, and I am a runner. I am excited to work for OAESD as a program director to keep up with and continue the great work the OAESD has done to increase collaboration among ESDs and to improve equitable outcomes for students across our incredible state.
