My name is Ms. Kristie or Ms. Bruhn, whichever you prefer to call me. I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin, where we had lots of different farm animals. My parents had sixteen children of which I am the youngest. When I was in high school, I came to Chicago in the summers to be a nanny. I have always had a great love for children. I have two children of my own; Ali is 26 and Josh is 24. When they were younger, I was given the opportunity to work at their elementary school. When I was first transferred to Thorp, I was a bus monitor, and worked throughout the school with the children. I was given the opportunity to become a full time tutor. I love working with the children and helping them with challenges they may face.
