6th grade counselor
Hello 6th grade students and families!!! Mrs. Bramwell is so excited to be working with you all this year! Like all of you sixth graders, she is new to Cache La Poudre Middle School. She is happy to be on this unique journey with you this year!
Mrs. Bramwell graduated from Colorado State University in 2020 with a masters in school counseling. She clearly remembers what it's like to be a student!
Mrs. Bramwell loves middle schoolers' authenticity and sense of humor. She says the best thing about talking to middle schoolers is that they are full of surprises and exceed others' expectations.
Her favorite thing to do is spend time outside hiking or paddleboarding. She also loves to exercise, practice yoga, and cook. She treasures spending time with her husband, two children, and her pug, Buttercup. Some things that are unique about Mrs. Bramwell is that she has seven siblings, and grew up in New Mexico.
