Kim Kruger

Office Manager

In over 22 years working at CCSD as an Elementary, Special Education teacher, Educational Computer Specialist, and Special Education Instructional Facilitator she always felt that there was something missing: the ability to share her faith and belief in God. After 3 years of teaching at Grace Christian Academy she fell in love with the school & agreed to become the principal. When not working with children, Mrs. Rodriguez enjoys photography, horseback riding, and spending time with her family.

Mrs. Kruger is one of our parents that fell in love with the school. She studied Photography in college and has done much traveling since then. She has a passion for organization and a newfound love for Administration. When she isn't in the office, she enjoys hiking, biking, walking the dogs (or ferrets), and watching the sunset at the park.
