|Welcome to Mrs. Bruns' Page!
This is my first year at GMS, but my 22nd year of teaching in Columbia Public Schools. I have taught social studies previously at Lange (14 years) and at West (7 years). I'll be teaching 6th grade social studies this year on Team 6A. I will also be serving as the Social Studies Department Chair.
I will be starting a Geography Club this year at GMS and will be helping my husband, Rob, who will be teaching 6th grade science at GMS, with Science Olympiad.
I was raised in Iowa Falls, IA and have two younger sisters, who still live in Iowa with their families. I have been married to my husband for 14 years and we have a son, Beckett, who will be 10 years old in September and in the 4th grade at R.B.E. We also have three cats named Tink, Dash and Daisy.
I earned my B.A. in History Education from the University of Northern Iowa and earned my M. Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from Lindenwood University.
I am a big Iowa Hawkeye fan, have a large Hello Kitty collection in my classroom and love to travel with my family.
