Hello 2nd Grade Families!
My name is Ashley Kruger and this is my tenth year teaching at Eagle Ridge Academy. I graduated from The College of Saint Benedict/St. John's University in 2010. I have my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with a K-8 teaching license, and an emphasis in Communication Arts and Literature. I have twelve years of experience working within charter schools. During the 2020-21 school year, I completed a graduate program through SMSU called the Charter School Leadership Certificate Program. I am really looking forward to playing a pivotal role in your child's education throughout the 2021-22 school year, and I will work hard to make sure they are successful. By having the pillars of citizenship, integrity, perseverance, honor, excellence, and respect as our guides we will have a great year in second grade!


Please feel free to contact me at with any questions, comments, or concerns throughout the year. I will respond back to you within 24 hours.
Please utilize your child's Canvas account to check progress grades.
