|Hello. I am Mrs. Kroger. I started teaching at Yucca Elementary School in 2012, and I feel so lucky to be a part of the family and
community. I started out teaching the 3rd - 5th grade students. Fortunately, our school district made the wise decision to bring back our
middle school program. I was given the opportunity to move up with my students to the 6th - 8th grade classroom. I enjoy this age group,
and have a lot of fun teaching in this classroom.
When I first started going to college, I wanted to be an accountant. I always loved math and business classes in school, so it seemed like a
good fit. After successfully completing the courses through MCC to receive my Associate degree in Business, I continued on to receive a
Certificate in Accounting. While doing this, I had also been married and started raising a family. A goal I set for myself as a high school
graduate extended a little longer than planned. As I grew and changed, so did my dream of a career. My desire to teach and nurture came
out as my children got older. That is when I decided to change my career path.
I then decided to change my career path, further my education, and become a teacher. I completed my education through Northern
Arizona University where I received a Bachelor degree in Elementary Education. I come from a family of educators, so it's no surprise that
this is where I found my home.
Arizona has been my home since birth and I have lived in Kingman the majority of the time. I have a husband and three wonderful
children. Our children are very active in sports, so they keep me busy at the park and out of town for tournaments. During the summer,
we like to spend time camping during the summer. We also enjoy hiking, biking, and fishing at the lake with the kids. I like listening to
music and playing games with my family. Spending my free time with my family is a true joy.
Education is very important in our children's lives. It is an amazing feeling to be a part of the growth and excitement a child feels when they
accomplish something they set their minds to. With encouragement and positive attitudes, along with the help from our wonderful staff and
family members, we can all have a successful year. I am looking forward to the challenge.
