Hello! Hallo! Bonjour! Hola!

Hi!  I'm Mrs. Kruger.  I teach 8th grade Spanish I, 7th grade Language Discovery, Math 180, and Read 180.  I absolutely love teaching at Horizon!  Every day brings something new and exciting and I have amazing students to share in these experiences.  I have been teaching at Horizon since Fall of 2013.  I have endorsements in Spanish, Elementary Education, and English as a Second Language.  I am currently studying K-12 Reading at UNK.
 
When I am not at Horizon, I am spending time with my husband, Elliot, our daughter, Adalie, and our labrador, Oliver.  We enjoy spending time outside in our garden and at the Platte River.  In my free time I love to read, watch movies, and play tennis.
 
I look forward to another school year and can't wait to meet my students!
