Meet the Mentors: 2012-2013 TRiO Peer Assistants

Caitlin Bruckman   Hey all!
My name is Caitlin Bruckman and I am 21 years old. I am currently a senior at DWU and double majoring in elementary and special education. When I am not on campus as a peer mentor, I work at Bright Beginnings Daycare and Kids Klub. I absolutlely love my jobs and working with children. My favorite things include reading, staying physically fit/sports, being outside, Husker football, and hanging out with family and friends. I am originally from Hastings, Nebr., which is four and a half hours straight south of Mitchell. I have three older sisters and one younger sister. I also have four beautiful nieces and a very handsome nephew. I am so excited about this year and meeting all the new faces. I know TRiO will be a blast for everyone and we will all have a wonderful year!
