Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Kari Braun

I have been teaching at Bernotas since 2008.  I have been in 7th grade for 5 years now. I graduated from the University of Colorado with a psychology degree and went back to school for my masters in Education at Rockford.  I have been married to my best friend for 32 years and have 2 beautiful daughters. I love anything that has to do with the outdoors.  I love to exercise so I enjoy kayaking, running, and lifting weights.  I'm very health conscious and am fascinated with nutrition.  I'm always reading and researching new ways to stay healthy.  I'm looking forward to a great year with my students!!!! We will do lots of reading, researching and getting to know one another!!!
