Brenda Scheuermann

Brenda Scheuermann


Brenda Scheuermann graduated from Monticello High School in 1973. After graduating from Illinois State University with a bachelor’s degree in Special Education, she began her career in Decatur as a special education teacher.  While there, she started Decatur’s first class for children with autism. She moved to Austin, Texas, where she taught in the district’s first classes for students with autism. She received her Masters and Doctoral Degrees at The University of Texas at Austin, studying Autism and Emotional Disturbance. She continued her career as an educator at Texas State University where she is Professor of Special Education and Coordinator of Graduate Programs in Special Education.

Throughout her career, Brenda has sought to help the most marginalized students achieve school success by studying and disseminating practices that help educators be more effective with students who are difficult to teach and included larger issues of schoolwide discipline, school safety, and juvenile justice. She now works with state and county juvenile justice agencies around the country to improve behavior programming for youthful offenders. In addition, she is leading efforts to better integrate school police as part of an overall school focus on preventive discipline. Her work has long been funded by major research grants through the U.S. Departments of Education and Justice. Brenda has written books, published professional journal articles, and presented her work at international conferences.

Brenda’s family is her greatest source of joy. Brenda is married to Bill Jacobs. They have three children, Colin, Ben, and Leah, and 7 grandchildren. Brenda’s family still lives in Monticello and surrounding cities, and she returns often to visit family and friends. Monticello is a very special place for Brenda, and she is truly honored to be recognized by the school that laid the foundation for her lifelong pursuit of knowledge.
