Government teacher Ms. Breanna Bellefontaine-Krupski is now a mom
BY ABAGAIL KOVACS
A potentially dangerous situation turned joyful when BEHS government teacher Ms. Breanna Bellefontaine-Krupski and her husband had their first child, Gabriel Michael, six weeks early after a complication with preeclampsia.
The couple had been in the hospital for nearly two weeks before Gabriel was delivered via c-section. However, his condition has been steadily improving and the couple hopes to bring him home by November.
“With Gabriel being a preemie, it has been hard to not worry about his health, but it has been amazing watching him grow and champion through his challenges,” said Ms. Bellefontaine-Krupski. “He is healthy, he is just working on growing. My husband and I are very lucky!”
She also explains that, despite the initial medical difficulties, she is thrilled to become a parent. She says she is surprised at how natural the parenting instinct is and how hard Gabe’s silly faces make her laugh.
“We are both active people and can't wait to share our hobbies with him and watch him grow up and develop his own interests and talents,” she said. “I would be lying if I didn't say that I can't wait to introduce him to the insane world of politics!”
As of now, Ms. Bellefontaine-Krupski’s AP Government class is being taught by Ms. Dawna Cyr. However, Ms. B-K plans on returning to Bonny Eagle in December and looks forward to dissecting the new political landscape after the presidential election.
“I am sure it will be tough leaving Gabe during the day, but, I LOVE my job and cannot wait to catch back up with [my classes]!”
"We can’t wait to have her back,” agreed Ms. Cyr, “Everyone will be looking forward to it.”
