Think of your most favorite teacher. Remember how funny, kind, and engaging they are or were? That is who Mrs. Kramer is! I have been blessed to have Mrs. Kramer for both of my children. Not to my surprise, they both adored her equally! She is nurturing and understanding while encouraging her students to reach their full potential by challenging each one appropriately. She always has a an enthusiastic engaging approach that captivates her students and makes learning fun! Not only is she fabulous with her students, she also makes time for the parents of her students as well. She warmly welcomed parents into her classroom for numerous class events and she always immediately took care of any issue I asked her to look into. You want your children to go to school and learn academically and socially while being safe and happy. Mrs. Kramer did this for both my daughters. I will be forever grateful!

Mrs. Kramer was my son's 2nd grade teacher. He inspired and challenged my son. My son enjoyed the class the whole school year. My son told me that he thinks he had the best 2nd grade teacher in whole school. Most impressive words Mrs. Kramer said was that she had 21 children.She truely loves her students and she treats them like her own children.?

Mrs. Kramer was a wonderful teacher for my daughter. She was patient and understanding of my daughter's sometimes challenging behaviors. She went above and beyond and maintained a strong home/school connection and enriched her academically. We are truly grateful for this amazing teacher!

My daughter was in Mrs. Kramer’s class this past school year. She told me that “school is her most favorite place to be in the entire world!” You know Mrs. Kramer must be very special to inspire these feelings in a 7 year old.
