Mrs. Kari Bruhn

Cougar Cub Family,

I am so excited to be a part of the Pecan Grove Elementary School family. I graduated from the University of Wyoming with a Bachelors in Elementary Education and received my Masters of Administration and Supervision from University of Houston. In addition, I have completed the Superintendent and Leadership Academy at Region 4 Education Center. Over the past 20 years, I have worked as a teacher, specialist, campus administrator and district Director in Fort Bend ISD. I began my career at Mission Bend Elementary as a 5th Grade Math & Science Teacher. I have taught 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th and 8th grade students before going into administration. I was an Assistant Principal at Dulles Middle School prior to my first principalship at Mission Glen Elementary. I worked there for five years prior to opening our district’s 50th elementary school, James Patterson Elementary where I led the panthers for three years. For the past year and a half, I have been working at the district level in Teacher Development. Not only do I bring experience but have had many learning opportunities in all my roles and excited to share my knowledge and skills with my new Cougar Cub family. I have also had some great leadership development with Raise Your Hand Texas (RYHT) where I have had the privilege to engage in learning at Rice University in the Education Entrepreneurship Program and attend Improving Schools, The Art of Leadership at the Harvard Graduate School of Education Principal Center. I continue to work with RYHT to advocate for public education and engage in professional learning.

I love being an educator and advocate for students. My desire is for every student at PGE to excel as a learner and as a citizen of great character. I look forward to spending time with students, staff and families, getting to know them, and celebrating their successes.

We are destined for greatness at PGE!
