Germaine Brodeur, Retired Secondary School Educator, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of education.
With a warm personality and a caring nature, Ms. Brodeur has excelled as an educator, enriching the lives of all whom she encounters. She has held numerous positions throughout the course of her career, including psychotherapist for Catholic Family Services in St. Charles, MO, from 1988 to 1992, chairman of the math department for Parkway Schools in Chesterfield, MO, from 1983 to 1986, also working as a math teacher for the school from 1974 to 1987 and again from 1989 to 1994. Additionally, Ms. Brodeur has been a teacher and chairman of the math department for the Hawaii School for Girls in Honolulu from 1969 to 1974, a teacher for the St. Margaret’s School for Girls in Waterbury, CT, from 1965 to 1969 and a computer programmer for the Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co., in Springfield, MA, from 1960 to 1965.
In preparation for her exciting career, Ms. Brodeur earned a Bachelor of Arts in mathematics from the University of Massachusetts in 1960, a Master of Arts in teaching from Webster University in 1975 and a Master of Social Work from the University of Missouri in 1989. She remains grateful to Helen L. Ladd, her music teacher in high school who had always believed in her, and her high school counselors who encouraged her to pursue higher education. As the ninth of 11 children, Ms. Brodeur admired her siblings and enjoyed a wonderful childhood with their care and attention, attributing her success to their positive guidance and influence. Though she had been a successful computer programmer for the Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co., she did not feel fulfilled, leaving this position to work as a camp counselor in the Adirondacks. A highly evolved woman whom Ms. Brodeur worked with convinced her that teaching was her vocation, a call Ms. Brodeur answered when she began working for the St. Margaret’s School for Girls. Since the first day she worked as a teacher, Ms. Brodeur felt an unprecedented comfort at the school, solidifying her decision to teach.
Consistently believing in and listening to her students, Ms. Brodeur stove to empower all her students. She has been recognized for her success by multiple organizations, receiving grants from the National Science Foundation in 1970 and 1971 and the National Association of Independent Schools in 1972. Ms. Brodeur has been named the Math Teacher of the Year in 1985, Community Hero Torch Bearer for the 1996 Summer Olympics, Woman of Year in 2000 with the Wentzville Business and Professional Woman and has been included in the Top 15 United Methodists in World by Interpreter Magazine in 2000. She holds membership with numerous esteemed organizations including the National Association of Social Workers, the Missouri Education Association, the Parkway Education Association and the Missouri Middle School Association, previously holding membership with the Missouri National Education Association and the National Education Association.
Ms. Brodeur’s kindness and generosity are limitless, as she has spent time pursuing interests beyond her main career. She has been the Missouri State Mathcounts coach in 1984, founded the Wentzville United Methodist Church Adopt-A-Family Ministry in 1998 and has been chairman of the West St. Charles Housing Coalition from 2000 to 2014. Furthermore, Ms. Brodeur founded Bennet Human Services Software, Inc., serving as the chief executive officer from 2003 to 2014, and has lent her time and talents as the secretary for the CountryView Citizens Association, Inc., since 2017.
