MrsBratschI was born in Mankato, MN and grew up on a farm situated between Mankato, Nicollet, and St. Peter. I have two brothers and one sister.

I went to Trinity Lutheran School in Nicollet for grades 1-8. After confirmation I went to high school in New Ulm, MN at Martin Luther Academy. After I graduated I went on to D.M.L.C. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education but did not receive a call after graduation because I married my husband, Larry, that same year in June. I started working part time at Trinity, Belle Plaine in the fall of 1976 and I’ve been here ever since. In June of 2014 I celebrated 25 years of teaching here at Trinity. I had taken a ten year leave from Trinity to have my family .I have one son and three daughters.

When I came back to work at Trinity I started the Kindergarten program, which was three full days a week, and a few years later I started the Preschool program, which was the other two days of the week.

I have gone back to school at Mankato State University and M.L.C.
I love to read, crochet and travel to visit my children. I recently became a new grandmother, which gives me

lots of reasons to travel since three of my four children live out of state. I love keeping in touch with my children.
