About Me!

Hello Families! I am Mrs. Kraatz (my former students know me as Miss Brown). This is my 3rd year teaching 6th grade Science, Social Studies, and Math at Caroline Bentley! This summer on June 17th I had my fairy tale wedding marrying my college sweetheart of 7 years Eric. Eric is a 2nd grade teacher in Frankfort and we currently reside in New Lenox. I am a family person and enjoy spending my free time with my parents & older brother!

In the winter of 2012 I graduated from Saint Xavier University where I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education with endorsements in Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Middle School. I also have a minor in Physical Education and I am currently pursuing my Master's degree in Reading Instruction from Olivet Nazarene University.
