Hello! My name is Nancy Kruse. This will be my sixth year at Pratt School and I love it here. The students are smart (and hard working), the parents are wonderful to collaborate with and the staff here is excellent! I am so excited and I am looking forward to a productive school year.
I grew up in South Minnespolis and attended school at Fuller (now a park), Hale, Field, Anthony and Washburn (graduated 1984). I received my BS degree in Elementary Education at the University of Minnesota and my Master of Arts in Education at St. Mary's University. I started teaching in Minneapolis in 1990. I have taught High Five, Kindergarten, First Grade and now I am excited to be teaching my second year of Third Grade.
I am married to Jim. This year will be our 24th wedding anniversary and we dated 7 years before getting married - wow time flies! I have a daughter, Kayla, who is 19 and a sophomore at Wartburg College in Wavery, Iowa. She plans on majoring in Biochemistry and going into pharmacy. I have 2 dogs (Australian Shepherds) and 2 cats.

sport to play: softball
