Instructional Coach

Welcome to the Prairie Trail Elementary.  My name is Amy Krause and I'm fortunate to serve as the Instructional Coach at Prairie Trail.  I am thrilled to be a part of a professional team that puts students and student learning first. 

I started teaching in 1999.  My first year was spent teaching Special Education in the Johnston Community Schools.  I then came to Ankeny where I taught Special Education at Southeast Elementary for four years.  I spent ten years teaching 3rd Grade at both Crocker Elementary and here at Prairie Trail Elementary.  

I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa. Go Panthers!  I graduated with a double major in both elementary and special education.  I completed my Masters of Education through Vitterbo University.  I consider myself to be a life-long learner and continue to learn new strategies and teaching techniques.

 It's a honor to be a part of this wonderful district. Please feel free to contact me at any time.
