Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Kraus

Hello, my name is Emily Kraus and this is my fifth year teaching at Chelsea Heights.  It is my ninth year in St. Paul, and my fourteenth year as a classroom teacher.   I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, where I studied Spanish and Psychology.  I completed my Masters of Arts in Teaching at Hamline University in St. Paul.  Before Chelsea Heights, I taught second and third grades at Adams Spanish Immersion in St. Paul, as well as at Richfield Dual Language School in the Richfield district. 

I live in Burnsville with my husband and our two children, who are six and four.  My husband teaches chemistry at Harding High School in St. Paul.  In my free time I enjoy spending time outside, especially playing with my kids.  I also enjoy reading, watching movies, and traveling when I get the chance, especially to the North Shore.  

I am so happy to be teaching at Chelsea Heights, and am impressed daily at what a wonderful community we have here.
