Krause named new principal at Glen Cove Elementary

The Roanoke County School Board has named Will Krause as the new principal at Glen Cove Elementary School, effective July 1.  Krause replaces Stephanie Hogan who earlier this year was named the new executive director of elementary instruction for Roanoke County Public Schools.

Krause began with Roanoke County Public Schools in 2005 as an instructional assistant at Cave Spring Elementary School (CSES).  From 2006 to 2012, he taught various grades at CSES.  In 2013, he became a history teacher at Cave Spring Middle School.  In 2014, Krause left Roanoke County Public Schools to become an assistant principal in Roanoke City.

Outside the classroom, Krause continued to be active with Roanoke County Public Schools athletic programs.  He currently serves as the head assistant coach of the Cave Spring High School boys soccer team, who won the VHSL class 3 state championship last year.  He also has served as a coach for the Hidden Valley Middle School and Hidden Valley High School girls soccer teams.

Krause holds a bachelor’s degree from Virginia Tech, a Master of Education from the University of Virginia and an Educational Specialist Degree in educational leadership from Virginia Tech.

“I’m very pleased that Will is returning to Roanoke County Public Schools,” said Dr. Ken Nicely, superintendent of Roanoke County Public Schools.  “Will has been an outstanding teacher and coach and I’m confident he will be an outstanding principal at Glen Cove,” Nicely said.
