Liberty Legacies: Savannah Kruse

When you think of a co-teacher or a teacher assistant, you may think of a new person who is just now graduating college and wanting to become a teacher.

However, when you talk to Savannah Kruse and figure out her back story, she’s a lot more than a “college graduate” or a “new teacher.” She just wanted to be a basketball coach because she grew up loving the sport and she ended up becoming a teacher too. 

Kruse is a very kind, sweet and loving person. She has a very strong passion for basketball and teaching. Kruse has been out of college since 2021 so this is only her third year out of college but second year working here.

“Liberty High School is full of positive and wonderful faces and I’m glad I get to see everyone, everyday,” Kruse said.

When asked Kruse how basketball turned into teaching, she said, “In basketball, I’m teaching the players how to play and in class when teaching, I’m coaching the kids.”

She also said: “In basketball we have game days and those days are just like test days in school. I have to prepare the kids for both of those things and encourage them to do their play and focus on both.”  

Kruse graduated with a communications degree in college and when she got out of college she didn’t really know what to do.

“I started coaching here at Liberty because I graduated from Liberty. I started coaching and teaching fell hand-to-hand with coaching plus I like it so far.”

Kruse wants to become an English teacher. She says English was her favorite subject all throughout grade school.

It has been proven that Kruse has made an impact on the school as she won Support Staff of the Year for 2023-2024 school year.
