Hi! My name is Vanessa Kruse and I am a certified librarian at La Vega Primary School. I have worked in this district for the last 15 years and absolutely love it! I have been married for 32 years to an ag teacher so education is a part of who we are. I have two grown children, a daughter and a son and I am blessed with the sunshines of my life...my grandchildren: Jacob, Braelynn, Khloe, Dakota, Landon and Ty.
I am a late bloomer so I went back to school in 1992 and received my Bachelor's in Elementary Education from Tarleton State University in 1995. I have taught first, second and third grades. In 2001 I got my Learning Resources endorsement so I could become a certified librarian. My first librarian job was here at La Vega Primary and I've been here ever since. I had the opportunity to go back to school to work on my Master's through Tarleton State University and graduated with a degree in Educational Administration on August 9, 2014.
I love to spend time with my family, read, camp and cook.
My goal is to instill a love of stories in our students and get them excited about the adventures awaiting them inside a book.
P. S. Be sure and check out photos of our latest events happening in the library!
