Welcome to Kratzberg Beach

Meet Mrs. kratzberg

I am so very excited for the 2018/2019 school year! I have been teaching for thirteen years and seven of those have been in kindergarten. I love teaching kindergarten and watching my students come in as these tiny people and leave me reading and writing full stories! The stories I hear on a daily basis from my students make this job well worth it. :)

I am originally from Iowa. I graduated from the University of Iowa with an elementary education degree with a reading endorsement. My husband and I moved to the West Lafayette area in 2008 for his work and have been in love with the area and the family feel of this town. My husband works at Cook Medical as a Biomedical Engineer. We have two beautiful children -- Ryder & Evie. Ryder will be seven in September. He will be entering first grade this year at Burnett Creek and I am so excited to see how kindergarten has prepared him for that adventure. He loves to play outdoors and he uses his imagination constantly. Evie just turned two. She is outgoing, fun, and is everything we never knew we needed. We love to hike, fish, camp, and be outdoors together.

Are you a new student to my classroom this year? If so we are going to have so much fun together! Click on my welcome letter to read a little more about me and our year together. Looking forward to open house and meeting everyone!
