I was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Mark and Melody Bruffey. We moved to Minnesota in the summer of 2000 where my mother began teaching English at FBCS. I attended the school from K5 through 12th grade and graduated in 2013. Afterward, I attended the University of Minnesota from 2013 to 2017, earning degrees in Physics and Astrophysics. In 2018 I started teaching Physics at FBCS. This year I am taking over the Senior High Science program, teaching Physical Science, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. I also teach some elective classes including Introduction to Programming and Introduction to Microelectronics.
