Ms. Schrantz

Hello, my name is Krystle Schrantz and I am very excited to be teaching High School Literacy this year. This will be my eleventh year working at Cove. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Northeastern Illinois University with a certificate in Elementary Education in 2008 and received my LBS1 from National Louis University in January 2016. When I am not teaching I enjoy coaching Poms, Dance and Boys Hip-hop. I am looking forward to a great year!
