Taylor Krause is a first year teacher in the 1st grade classroom this year. She attended University of Northern Colorado for college, but was raised and attended high school right here in Akron, Colorado. Ms. Krause’s favorite book is The Book Thief, she loves any kind of Mexican food, and adores the quote “Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and celebrating it for everything that it is.” The reason Ms. Krause got into teaching is because she always knew she wanted to work with kids and help them in some way. She also wanted to follow in her mother's footsteps by being a teacher at Akron. When asked what she was looking forward to for her first year of school, she replied, “ I’m looking forward to meeting many new students and learning from them as much as they learn from me.” We wish Ms.Krause luck with her first year of teaching!
