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 13 years and absolutely love it! I have been married for 30 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 sunshine of my grandson who attends La Vega Primary.

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. Last summer (2013) I had the opportunity to go back to school to work on my Master's Degree through Tarleton State University. I should finish this by the end of this summer and will graduate 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.
