My name is Mrs. Craun. I began my career in District 518 at the Area Learning Center teaching Science and Reading. For the past twelve years I have taught Science, English, and Reading at the Middle School. My current assignment is Middle School 6th grade Physical Science and Reading.
My Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees were earned from Minnesota State University, Mankato. In addition, I have completed my K-12 Reading Certification from the University of Sioux Falls. My most recent educational opportunity has been to receive inquire training at the San Francisco Exploratorium. Some of the many teaching experiences I have had are Gifted and Talented Coordinator, Public Health Educator, Department of Education HIV/AIDS Educator, Prairie Arts Program Director, and Newspapers In Education facilitator.
Teaching at the Worthington Middle School is my favorite assignment. I enjoy the students’ enthusiasm and willingness to learn. My role as ‘a guide on the side, not a sage on the stage’ provides interesting challenges every day.
During my time outside of school I enjoy reading nonfiction, playing hand bells and traveling anywhere.
