About Me

Educational History:

I graduated from East Gaston High School in Mount Holly, NC in 1994.  After high school I attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.  I graduated from the Department of Education at UNCC in 1999.

Degrees and Certifications:

  I graduated from UNCC with a Bachelors' Degree in Elementary Education and a concentration in English and Literacy. At that time I received a K-6 certification (teaching license). I transferred my North Carolina teaching license to an Arkansas teaching license  (preschool - 4th with a 5th and 6th grade endorsement ) in 2012, after taking the Arkansas Praxis exams and completing an Arkansas History class at COTO in Malvern, AR. 

Professional Development:

I recently completed RISE training, and have been trained specifically in the 95% Group Phonics program.

Current Position:

I have been an employee of the Ouachita School District for 10 years.  I began teaching at Ouachita Elementary in 2008. I was an aide at Ouachita Preschool for 3 years.  I began teaching 3rd grade in 2012. I am currently the 3rd grade literacy teacher.

Previous Position:

I taught Kindergarten at Gardner Park Elementary in Gastonia, North Carolina from 2000 to 2002.  I transferred to Rankin Elementary in 2002, and taught Kindergarten there from 2002 to 2005.  After relocating my family to Arkansas in 2007, I became a substitute teacher while working on the necessary requirements to transfer my teaching licenses.  During that time I filled in for a teacher who was on maternity leave as a certified teacher.

Family Information:

I have been married to my husband, Richard Kratz, for 20 years!  We have two wonderful kiddos.  Riley is 17, and in the 12th grade.  Christian is 16, and in the 11th grade.  They both attend Ouachita Highschool and love it!  I am the proud owner of a Bassett Hound named Rosie, a mutt named Rooster, 2 cats (Cinnamon and Nacho), a Potbelly Pig named Betty, and many crazy chickens. 

Personal Information:

When I am not teaching or preparing lessons (on site and virtual) for my students, I am usually reading a good book or watching Netflix.  I love  a great story!!  I also help teach  2 and 3 year olds at my church on Sunday mornings. Cooking is something I enjoy when I have time to make a huge mess :) I attend many basketball games, cheering my kids on. Go Warriors!
