Impactful Teachers: Mrs. Aimee Krause

By: Morgan Mansfield/Sophomore Writer

Aimee Krause, a high school English teacher at Blue Ridge, has had a positive impact on much of Blue Ridge’s student body, especially on the class of 2018.

Julia Rudick, a Blue Ridge senior, has been majorly impacted by Mrs. Krause throughout her high school career.  Mrs. Krause had Rudick in her classroom as a freshman, and now again as a senior.  Rudick is also a member of the yearbook club, of which Mrs. Krause is the advisor.

Over the years, Rudick and Mrs. Krause have formed a school “mother-daughter” relationship.  When she needs it most, Mrs. Krause is always there to give Rudick advice when she is feeling down, and reminding her not to stress too much.

Rudick will miss watching Mrs. Krause try to walk around with, not one, but two cups of coffee and her keys

“I’ll miss her cute little outfits that she always wears and her little pigtails,” said Rudick.

Rudick is not the only member of the senior class, or the rest of Blue Ridge’s high school student body, who has been impacted by Mrs. Krause.  Krause finds it important to make connections and form relationships with her students.

“I feel that in order for me to teach my students, I need to understand where they are coming from as much as they need to understand the same of me. These connections make for a comfortable learning environment, which I believe works best for me and my students in my classroom,” said Mrs. Krause.
