Mr. David Kraus
You have made it to my personal website with WGSD. I am a WGHS alum and fell in love with the German language in Frau Sittmann's German class. During my junior year of high school I spent a year abroad living in Germany on the Baltic Sea. This solidified my drive to share my passion for the German language and culture with future students. Previously, I taught German and Gender Studies at Wayne State University in Detroit. In 2017 I joined Webster Groves High School and I currently teach German 1, German 2, German 5/AP at WGHS. In 2018 I helped to pilot an exploratory foreign language wheel at Steger. As of 2019 I teach two sections of German 2 at Hixson Middle School. After school, I help Nicholas Kirschman coach our Robotics teams, Statesbots Orange and Statesbots Black. I also help facilitate with Simone Cunningham our school's social justice group SpeakUP!, who have been trained using procedures developed by the Anti-Defamation League to combat bias and bullying in our school.
