Mrs. Kruger says that her thirty-four years of teaching have been fulfilling and a good match for her.

“I will really miss being around the kids,” says Peggy Kruger, long-time AHS teacher, when asked what she will miss most when she retires, “they kept me young.”

  Thirty-four years is a long time to spend in the classroom.  When asked how things have changed, Kruger says that teaching has gotten harder.  “We have half as many full-time English teachers in 7th – 12th grades as we used to.  This year I had 140 students.”  The increase can make things harder than they used to.  There are also fewer and fewer electives for students.  It all comes down to budgeting, and over the years many electives have been cut. 

Mrs. Kruger will miss the students and staff in Adrian and adds, “I want to thank the Adrian district for being so good, and for being such a good employer.”  Mrs. Kruger will be greatly missed and we wish her well in her retirement.
