Growing up with parents who were educators coupled with a passion for working with children, Tara Krueger always knew she wanted to be a teacher. Her teaching journey began at the University of Minnesota where she received a master of education degree. She began her teaching career as a Title I reading and math interventionist at a K–8 school in Milwaukee. Working with mostly English language learners, Tara was able to utilize her Spanish skills to support student learning and continue to develop her passion for education. With a strong desire to be a classroom teacher, Tara continued her career as a multiage first- and second-grade teacher in Muskego-Norway School district. That position led her to work closely with wonderful team behind Engaging Literate Minds who enabled her to truly envision new possibilities for teaching and learning.
After several years in Muskego, Tara and her family decided to move across the country to Colorado. Tara currently serves a diverse student population as a reading teacher in the city of Denver. She leads the reading intervention program at her school as well as early literacy professional development for staff. Tara, her husband, and young daughter love to take advantage of everything “Colorful Colorado” has to offer including hiking in the mountains, camping, and exploring the state. She visits her family as well as friends and former colleagues in Wisconsin often and will always consider it home.
