About Me...

 Staff PhotoHello! My name is Mrs. Kraatz and I am very excited to be your child's 6th grade teacher for the 2020-2021 school year!  This is my 7th year teaching at Bentley.  I currently reside in New Lenox with my husband of 4 years, Eric who is an Assistant Principal in Homer Glen, our 1 year old son Joshua and our dog Cooper.  When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my little man and my friends!
