Welcome to Mrs. Krause’s English Class!



I graduated from Minot State University with honors in 2015, with a BSE in English. I was lucky enough to teach at Minot High School for one year before moving to Bismarck, where I worked with the Missouri River Educational Cooperative, running a before and after school program at an elementary school. I am extremely grateful to be teaching here in Hazen for a second year!

I grew up in Pacifica, California: a small town on a beach, just south of San Francisco. I moved to Minot in 2010 after accepting a soccer scholarship, and I met my now-husband there! We have one baby boy, Jason, who turned two in September. My husband actually grew up in Hazen, and it is so surreal to be teaching where he used to be a student.

I am very passionate about reading and writing (and all things grammar-related), and my biggest goal is to get my students to enjoy Language Arts!
