Principal Kruger - Leading Lakeview Elementary

Hello, Lakeview Elementary community! I'm Principal Kruger, and it is both an honor and a privilege to serve as the principal of Lakeview Elementary. My educational journey has been profoundly shaped by the belief that meaningful learning flourishes when built upon strong relationships. With a strong commitment to inspiring and motivating both our staff and students, my mission is to help each individual unlock their full potential.

For me, it all boils down to a fundamental question: "What's best for kids?" I hold onto this question in every decision I make, dedicating myself to supporting every learner, every day, no matter the obstacles. My 13-year career in education has encompassed a range of roles, including teaching third and fifth-grade classrooms, serving as an instructional coach, and working as an innovative instructional design consultant. These experiences have ignited my passion for serving in an elementary school setting.

Beyond my role as principal, I am a proud dad and husband with three wonderful children. Our family shares a love for sports, biking, hiking, exploring new places, swimming, and cherished family movie nights. Personally, I find joy in woodworking, running, sports, reading, and a relentless commitment to continuous learning. I am thrilled to be part of the Lakeview Elementary community, and I am deeply dedicated to creating a nurturing and engaging learning environment for all our students. Please feel free to reach out, and let's embark on this exciting journey together!
