Dr. Margene Brohammer to Begin as Director of Secondary Education

Dr. Brent Sykes, Academic Dean, is excited to announce and welcome Dr. Margene Brohammer as a Professor and new Director of Secondary Education to the Randall community. He notes, “Margene’s energy for and passions for education and the Lord are self-evident. She will enrich our academic and spiritual community on campus. She will play a key role as we look to build a graduate program in Education.”

Dr. Margene Brohammer comes to Randall University from a career in public education, serving in Texas, Kansas, and Oklahoma.  She started her career in Amarillo, Texas, as a middle school Spanish teacher and later moved into school administration.  After serving as a high school and middle school Assistant Principal in Amarillo, she returned to her roots and family in Lawrence, Kansas, as the Associate Principal at Lawrence High School.  After twelve years, a move to Oklahoma brought her to Norman High School, where she served as Freshman Academy Principal for two years.  Most recently, she designed online training modules for early childhood professionals in the area of Trauma-Informed Care.

Said Mike Harris, Chair of the School of Education, “Margene’s experience as a teacher and administrator in working with English Language Learners and special needs students will bring a wealth of recent field knowledge in these two vital challenges facing public and private educators in Oklahoma. An experienced administrator, she has valuable experience in preparing and evaluating newly certified and emergency certified teachers. She adds tremendously to not only our secondary education programs but to all of our certification areas.”

Dr. Brohammer graduated from the University of Kansas and while teaching in Amarillo, finished her Master’s Degree in Educational Administration at West Texas A&M University.  While in Lawrence, she completed her doctorate in Educational Leadership at Saint Louis University in 2018.  Current areas of interest include trauma and brain development, culturally and linguistically diverse students, equity and inclusion, and job-embedded professional development.

Margene enjoys playing board games with family and friends.  On her bucket list is to appear on Wheel of Fortune or another TV game show. An avid reader, she avoids anything in the science fiction genre.  Her involvement at CrossPointe Church in Norman introduced her to graduates and staff of Randall University.  She looks forward to learning and honoring the stories and lived experiences of students and adults alike at Randall. #RockChalkJayhawk
