Meet Mrs. Brandt


Hello! My name is Kara Brandt...and I love teaching first grade! This will be my 14th year of teaching and my 9th year at Raven Stream. Before that, I taught 3rd grade in The Colony, TX. In between these jobs, I stayed at home with my children while they were young. I received my bachelor's degree from Bemidji State University and my master's degree from St. Mary's University.

I grew up in Lester Prairie, MN and now live in New Prague with my husband, Shawn. We have three children who all went through Raven Stream. Morgan is a freshman at St. Catherine's University. Adam is a junior and Rachel is a freshman at NPHS. I enjoy running, traveling, being on the lake, and spending time with my family. Playing with my sweet little dog, Phoebe, is a favorite too.

I look forward to being your child's teacher and working together to make this year a successful and positive learning experience for your child. We'll have lots of fun too! : )
