Welcome to Mrs. Bratteli's Class
we are a community of learners “making waves!”
My name is Nancy Bratteli. I am very excited to begin my 18th year teaching third graders at Aikin Elementary. My partner is Megan Groomes. Miss Groomes teaches Reading, Language, Writing, and Social Studies to both our classes, and I teach Math and Science.
I grew up in Dallas, where I graduated from Lake Highlands High School, and have lived in Paris for 40 years with my husband, Niel. Our son Paul lives in Longview, is a process control engineer for a large corporation, and loves to play the bagpipes; our older son John works in downtown Dallas doing computer work and has a rescue dog named Sam. Both boys attended Aikin and loved their teachers! I received both my bachelor's and master's degrees from Austin College. My hobbies are reading, cooking, astronomy, gardening, traveling, and playing games with my family. My favorite books are the Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis.
