The Whitefish Bay School District hired 22 new teachers this year, and Whitefish Bay Patch hopes to introduce all of them to the community before the school year gets underway.
Today, we will introduce you to first grade teacher Andrea Cramey.
Hometown/Current community: I was born and raised in Shorewood and now live with my husband and daughter in Wauwatosa.
Education/Experience: My undergraduate degree is from UW Madison and my graduate degree is from Cardinal Stritch, I spent the past 6 years teaching Kindergarten through second grades in the WAWM school district.
Do you have any connection to Whitefish Bay? I grew up attending Holy Family School in WFB and have fond memories of the area: going to , playing at , watching the fireworks at , and of course seeing the every fall! I am thrilled to be teaching in Whitefish Bay and to feel connected to such a wonderful, family-oriented community again!
Hobbies: I have a background in art and have been especially interested in photography lately.
Favorite place you've visited: I love to travel and have been to many exciting destinations, however my favorite was when I traveled through Europe just after I graduated from UW Madison. My favorite places were Rome (of course due to the history, art, and food!) and Interlaken, Switzerland (where I went rafting, canyoning, and paragliding!)
