In this edition of EUSD’s Spotlight Series, we want to introduce you to Brenda Langston and Simon Vieaux, two new teachers with a lot in common…
Brenda Langston and Simon Vieaux were both hired as full-time credentialed teachers this summer and are currently serving as full-time physical education teachers. They both grew up and attended EUSD schools from kindergarten through high school, and…they are cousins! So as we welcome them into ourEUSD family this year, we want to celebrate their contributions to our community of learners.
Brenda attended Miller Elementary School and Del Dios Middle School while growing up in Escondido. She participated in Escondido Girl’s Softball throughout her youth. Her hard work and dedication to the game eventually earned her a scholarship to the University of Mary in North Dakota, where she continued to play softball and earned a degree in Health and Physical Education. Brenda moved back to Escondido after graduation and began coaching softball for Orange Glen High School. Beginning her career with EUSD, she started as an Instructional Assistant. Now a full-time PE teacher at Rock Springs Elementary, Brenda is concentrating her efforts on the health and wellness of Rock Springs students by leading fun and engaging PE activities.
Simon attended North Broadway and Rincon in his youth. He enlisted in the Army after high school and was deployed to both Korea and Afghanistan. After serving our country in the U. S. Armed Forces, Simon moved back to Escondido to pursue the next chapter of his life. He completed his college education at CSU San Marcos, started a family, and student taught and volunteered at EUSD schools. As a full time PE teacher at Rose Elementary, Simon leads all classes through games and activities to ensure students are reaching their unlimited health and wellness potential.
