After attending the University of Washington for a year with aspirations of being a nurse, Brune decided to attend Central Washington University the following year to pursue her elementary education credentials. Brune has strong recollections of learning how to read in first grade from the Dick and Jane big books. Though she loved teaching both first-graders and kindergartners, she wanted to help children develop a passion for reading and knew she would love being either a reading specialist or a librarian. When asked what wisdom she might share with those in our WEA family, Brune says she would have told her younger self to learn how to find a healthy balance between her life at home, at school and in her union. While she has had an easy time adapting to changing times, she says she misses the more traditional roles she once had. Among the many roles she has enjoyed as a local president and vice president, bargaining is among her favorites. She served her union for two years then took a hiatus to care for her aging parents before engaging as a local leader once more, beginning in She continued her schooling at Cascade Junior High where she remembers female students were finally allowed to wear jeans, then became the Salutatorian and graduation day speaker at Sedro-Woolley High School in And while Brune says that students have become savvier, the spirit and the loving hearts of the kindergartners and other younger students remains the same as they were so many years ago.
