Allen Kruse was selected as Faculty Focus Friday employee for the Alternative Schools. He is the newest addition to ASPIRE and has already created an atmosphere in his classroom that rivals that of any seasoned educator, even though this is only his first year as a full time teacher. Mr. Kruse is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, (USMC) serving a decade as an enlisted man as well as more than a decade as an officer. His military experiences give him a tremendous set of life experiences that he is able to consistently translate into discourse with his students. Mr. Kruse teaches World History, Psychology, and US Government at ASPIRE, and he has quickly endeared himself to students and staff. Mr. Kruse is now taking on the Community Closet and Pantry endeavor in the hopes that we can better meet all of the daily needs of our students and their families. We are tremendously fortunate to have found an individual with the ability and passion that Mr. Kruse exudes each day. Thank you Mr. Kruse for your service to our students and the country. Go SPARTANS!
