Melisa Kruckeberg Bio

My name is Melisa Kruckeberg and I am a kindergarten teacher! I have taught for over 20 years with over 16 of those years being at Burks. I love kindergarten! In my teaching experience, all but 6 years have been in kindergarten. I have any amazing family that is very involved with Burks. My husband, Chace Kruckeberg, is your P.E. coach at Burks. It is so fun seeing him throughout the day. We have one amazing son, Alex, who attended Burks Kindergarten through 5th grade. Teaching children to learn to read is my passion. As a child, I struggled to learn to read until I encountered a teacher that was determined that I succeed. As I know the life altering impact of a passionate teacher, I work hard to be just as impactful. I believe that education is a joint effort and welcome parental thoughts and suggestions as we work to ensure that each child is successful.
