3rd Grade Classrooms
My name is Joe Bonner. I am going on my 30th year teaching. I have been at Kratz Elementary for 24 years. I have taught grades two through five. I am married and have an eleven year old son. I love to ride my bike when not at school.
Hi! My name is Lauren Openlander, and this is my second year teaching third grade at Kratz Elementary. Before I started working at Kratz, I taught third grade at Wyland Elementary for four years and second grade at Confluence Academy for two years. I am married and have a two year old son, and two boxers. When I’m not at work, I love crafting, fishing, and swimming.
Hi! My name is Morgan Pugh, and this is my first year teaching at Kratz but my sixth year of teaching. Previously, I taught in St. Louis before moving to Boston, Massachusetts where my husband attended graduate school. We are excited to be back in the Lou, this time with our new daughter, Evelyn who will be a year old in October. When I am not teaching, I love to spend time with family and enjoy going for walks and exploring Missouri.
Hi, I am Brittany Schneider and I teach Third Grade at Kratz Elementary. This is going to be my sixth year teaching Third Grade at Kratz. I am continuing my passion for teaching by working on my Masters Degree in Teaching and English Language Certification through Webster University. I grew up in this neighborhood and attended Ritenour. Some of my favorite things to do outside of teaching are relaxing with my pup, playing with makeup, and spending time with friends! I look forward to the fun we will have learning and exploring!
