Ms. Kate Kraybill
Hello! My name is Kate Kraybill and this is my fifth year in Blue Springs School District. After teaching in a variety of educational situations, ranging from a one-room K-8 school in the Sand Hills of Nebraska to the rural districts of Bowling Green and Monroe City, Missouri to finally an urban district in St. Louis County, I have enjoyed my first 4 years here and look forward to coninuing my career in our top ranked districts of Blue Springs. I have spent most of my life in and around small towns and that is what I like about Blue Springs. It is a "big" small town. I have a daughter who is has finished her EMT training and lives in Lexington, MO. My time last summer was spent getting ready for my daughter, Elli's, wedding which was on July 9, 2016. As an English teacher, my number one hobby is of course reading. I enjoy both fiction and nonfiction literature and love reading young adult literature so I am able to discuss and recommend books with my students. My other hobbies include spending time with my family which includes many nieces and nephews, 3 sisters, and my parents; movies, scrapbooking, spending time with friends, and watching my "kids" students in their many school activities.
