Mrs. Kelci Bradner

Hi Everyone! My name is Kelci Bradner and I am one of the Kindergarten teachers at Polenta! This will be my second year as a Puma teaching Kindergarten. Prior to joining the Polenta School Family, I taught in NC Pre-K for 9 years. I absolutely love spending my days with young children, supporting them as they learn and grow. When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family and loved ones. I am looking forward to another great year in Kindergarten!
