My name is Mrs. Brauns and I have taught sixth grade literature for several years at HJHS. In addition to literature, I also teach one section of sixth grade social studies. I enjoy listening to my students share thoughts and ideas about books they have read both independently and in class. I also enjoy creating & using new ways to engage students in my classroom.
In addition to teaching, I coach cheerleading at Greenville Junior High and also assist with the high school. I live in Greenville with my husband and two children. I have two sons, Gage & Gaite, & a daughter named Garis. Gage is working on his Masters degree in business and lives in Columbia, Missouri. Gaite is a junior at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri and Garis, a freshman at Kaskaskia College, is studying to be an elementary education teacher. Watching my kids play all of the sports keeps my pretty busy most of the time. In my free time, if I can find some, I like to play golf, read, and spend time with family and friends.
