Mrs. Witt-

This is my third year at Brookside and I am looking forward to another amazing year. I earned both my Bachelor’s degree in psychology and Master’s in Counseling Psychology from Avila University in Kansas City, Mo. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and was previously working at Crittenton Children’s Center as a hospital therapist. My husband also works at Brookside as the Athletic/Activities Director. We have a three year old little girl and two dogs. I enjoy the outdoors, traveling, and spending time with my family.

Mrs. Breithaupt-

This is my second year at Brookside!  I have a Bachelor’s degree in social work from Avila University and a Master’s degree in social work from Washburn University.  Last year, I completed my play therapy certification from Mid-America Nazarene University. Before coming to Brookside, I was working at Crittenton Children’s Center as a hospital therapist.  I have two children; Liam age 7 and Mila age 5.  As a family, we love to be outside, play or watch sports and travel.  I’m excited for this school year and to watch Brookside’s wonderful middle schoolers learn, grow and have fun!
