Ms. Falkenberg is a 30-year resident of South Euclid and a retired Brush High School English teacher. Her two daughters both graduated from Brush and have gone on to find success in the fields of education, as well, one in elementary ed and the other on the university level. While at Brush, her younger daughter, Kristen, started the Brush environmental club, Project Earth, which is still going strong and for which Ms. Falkenberg was the adviser for all 22 years. She also was privileged to have worked with the National Honor Society and to have taught all grades and levels of English Language Arts.
Ms. Falkenberg still is in contact with many of her former students and is so pleased to see our Brush grads succeeding in fields as diverse as education, acting, politics, business, art and many others. Her greatest joy now is spending time with her two granddaughters who are almost 3 and 1 and who live in Mentor.
Ms. Falkenberg is the OSBA Student Achievement Liaison for the Board of Education. Her current term runs through December 2021.
