Hello, my name is Carla Bratland. A native New Englander, my family relocated from Massachusetts to Texas last year. Although new to Texas, I am not new to the classroom having taught Fifth Grade for 13 years. It has always given me great joy to see students become enthusiastic readers who then become inspired writers. I am very excited to be teaching ELAR to Fourth Grade readers and writers at Carrollton Classical Academy!
My husband and I have two children, a daughter who lives in Texas and a son who attends the University of Massachusetts. Our family also includes Mocha, our Labrador Retriever, who enjoys the year-round hiking at nearby parks. In addition to hiking, we love boating in Lake Lewisville and discovering new adventures in this great state of Texas.
