All about Ms. Brandt
I grew up in Belle Plaine and graduated from BPHS--go Tigers!  I went to college at Golden Valley Lutheran College, then went on to Mankato State University aka University of Minnesota, Mankato where I received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and finally I got my Master's Degree from St. Mary's University.  

I have taught Head Start and was an ECFE coordinator (10 years), was in Kindergarten & 5th grade for 1 year, spent 17 years in 3rd grade and am starting my 2nd year as an RtI teacher at Oak Crest.

My family includes my three children, Nick (28), Kelsey (25) and Abby (21), my friend, Lee and my bonus grandchild, Hudson.  Outside of school, I enjoy walking, biking, camping, and being with my friends and family.

All about Ms. Bungarden
Greetings!  My family, Dave, Lila (10), Mason (8) and I, along with our 2 cats (Belle & Daisy) and dog (Wilson) have lived in Belle Plaine for 9 year and absolutely LOVE it here!   I really love the fact that I live where I work. I get a chance to see students and families outside of Oak Crest, whether it's at the ball fields, parks, grocery stores or other areas around town.  

I grew up and graduated from Proctor (near Duluth) in 2002, went to Concordia College where I majored in Elementary Education in 2006. ‚Äč I have been working in Belle Plaine for 8 years, with 2 of those being in ECFE/Preschool at Chatfield Elementary and the remainder at Oak Crest as one of the RtI teachers.
