Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Eric Krause

This is my first year at Smithville and my thirty-fifth year of teaching. I spent thirty-one years in Kansas, teaching and coaching in Olathe. I was a head wrestling coach and an assistant football coach. I also taught AP English and American/World History. After Olathe, I went out to Colorado for a year and taught English and coached football, wrestling, and track.

I moved back to Kansas in 2018 and taught College English at University Academy in Kansas City, Missouri. Last year, I taught World History I & II at Park Hill South High School.

This year at Smithvillville High School, I will be teaching AP Government. I look forward to the challenges and excitement of a brand new school year.
