Environmental Engineering PLTW



Hello! My name is Mrs. Klecatsky!

I teach biology and PLTW environmental engineering (Environmental Sustainability) at Brainerd High School in Brainerd, MN, which is also the town where I grew up. This is my 13th year here at BHS.

Our family consists of my husband, Chuck, a golf professional at the Legacy Courses at Cragun's, and our two children, Jada, age 13, and Jagger, age 11. We have three miniature dachshunds: Ruby, Ginger, and Mulligan. We also have a cat named Leo.
In my free time, I enjoy traveling, spending time outdoors, gardening, hanging with my family, doing yoga, etc. Our daughter enjoys stroia ballet and our son enjoys gymnastics, downhill skiing, and golf.

I graduated from North Dakota State University with a degree in Zoology-Wildlife and Fisheries and a minor in biological sciences.  I then attended St. Cloud State University to earn a teaching degree in Biology. I earned my Master's degree in Educational Leadership from Southwest Minnesota State University.

I am the science department chair for Infinity Online.  I have worked for them since 2006 and have taught online biology, marine biology, and forensic science for them. I also mentor new teachers.

I recently became a master teacher for PLTW and teach other teachers from around the country the PLTW ES curriculum. Most recently I traveled to St. Louis, MO and Columbia, SC.
