Hi Leroy Lions! My name is Sophie Krauth (Krauth rhymes with mouth) and I have been teaching 5th grade at Leroy since 2018. I am so proud to be a Lion! I lived in Boulder, Colorado until I was 6 years old and then my family moved to the city of Mitaka right outside of Tokyo, Japan. I grew up in Japan and went to an international school until college. My mom, dad, older brother Sam, and dog Toby still live in Japan!
I attended the College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio. I originally planned to study archaeology and become the next Indiana Jones, but I quickly learned I did not have the attention span for that kind of work! I graduated in 2016 with a degree in History and my Elementary Education Teaching License. I am a lifelong learner and I am currently working towards my Masters in Educational Equity and Cultural Diversity through CU Boulder.
