Hello, my name is Eric Krolak and I am very excited to be teaching second grade this year. It is my first year teaching as I have been a ParaProfessional for 18 years. I have a Bachelor's of Science in Information Technology and am proud to be part of the Teacher Prep Program which allows me to teach as I go back to school. I have wanted to be a teacher for a while and decided now was the time to do something about it. I have been a part of Mirage for 9 years, working with students in the classrooms and now look forward to teaching your children.
I am married to my beautiful wife Jaime and we have 3 children together; Tristyn (15), Sarabeth (14) and Ricky (5). My two older children have gone through K-6 at Mirage. My youngest, Ricky, will be starting Kindergarten at Mirage this year. I am originally from New York but moved here to Arizona when I was younger. I love spending time with my family hiking all over Arizona and exploring new areas.
This year will be a dedication of learning and growing for both your students and myself. It is my goal to support each student not only academically but also socially and emotionally as we pursue our quest in knowledge this year. We will start each day with a smile and work hard till the day is done. I believe that communication is key to your child’s success and to a great parent/teacher relationship. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
