• Welcome to my classroom...where growing and learning happens and students learn to THRIVE!

    thrive, hope, believe, create, potential, perseverance, resilience, grit, self-efficacy, honesty, dignity, determination


    Hello, my name is Mrs. DeKramer. You may or may not know me, but, either way, I cannot wait to embark on this journey with you! :) 

    Learning is a process.

    It happens each and every day--sometimes even when we don't realize it!

    My job is to walk alongside you, encourage you, teach you, and empower you to use the tools you've learned and the knowledge you possess to reach your full potential.

    Do you have a dream? Big plans for yourself after high school? I hope so! Whether you do or not, I am here to help you reach your goals and work towards fulfilling your wildest dreams! Let's dream, let's plan, and let's make it a reality! I believe in you and all that you can do. YOU are my reason for coming to school each day. 

    People often ask me:

    Why do I teach?

    Why does this matter?

    Why do I come to school each day?

    The answer is simple, but profound: it is because of YOU!

    YOU are my why.

    You are the reason I love coming to school each day and the reason I do what I do.

    I cannot wait to live, love, and learn with you!

    Life is too short to just "survive"; I am here to help you THRIVE! :) 

    P.S. Don't ever forget how much power there is tucked inside the three-letter word "yet"...

    Instead of saying, "I can't."

    Tell yourself "I can't do it yet."
