My name is Anika Krause and this is my 3rd year here at CDS. This year, I transitioned from middle school, where I was previously teaching 7th and 8th grade English and Drama, to join the high school team. I have really been enjoying the rich conversations and complex texts I have been able to engage in with my Juniors and Seniors so far this year, and look forward to continuing to support their growth and help them strengthen their analysis and expression as the year progresses.
As an educator, I firmly believe in the importance of educating the whole child and providing challenging, engaging work that inspires critical thinking. I am committed to creating engaging, real-life applicable learning experiences that help prepare the future leaders of our world.
When I am not in the classroom, you can find me hiking, baking, or cuddling up on the couch with my beloved cats, Peanut butter and Jelly.
