All About Me

My name is Carol Bruns and I am the ICAP teacher here at River Ridge Elementary. I have been married 22 years to my wonderful husband, Jim, and we have three fantastic children, Kelsey, Alex and Jacob. I grew up in California and received my B.A. and M.A. from California State University, Fullerton in Geography. I began teaching 3rd grade in a small, inner city private school in Houston. Six years later, I decided to move to administration and received an M.A. in Educational Administration from Grand Canyon University.

We moved the family to Austin in 2007 and I made the transfer to public schools after I developed my love for special needs students and their world. This will be my fifth year in SPED in Leander ISD. I am so happy to be at RRE and am very lucky to have the best assistants and students in the world! I am truly blessed.
