Mr. Jeffrey Krause


          I was born and raised in the town of Cheektowaga.  Although my high school diploma says Maryvale, I have now become an Eagle.  I have an Associates Degree from Erie Community College in General Studies, a Bachelors Degree from the University at Buffalo in History, and a Masters Degree from the University at Buffalo in Social Studies Education.  I am presently enrolled at Canisius College in their School Building Administration Program. 

          As I enter my twelfth year at Cleveland Hill, it is my fifth as Dean of Students in the High School.  For the first seven years at Cleveland Hill I worked as the Middle & High School In-School Suspension teacher.  In addition to that I have been class advisor for the Class of 2017, the Class of 2021 & currently the Class of 2025, the announcer for sporting events, a volunteer assistant coach for varsity softball and ran an after school program for academic assistance.  As Dean of Students, I look forward to continuing work with the staff, students and the community here at Cleveland Hill. My goal is to help all high school students become academically successful, stay on graduation path, and become active members of the school and community. 

          I have been awarded the great opportunity to be a chaperone on many outstanding trips here at Cleveland Hill.  In the past I have went with groups of Seniors to Virginia Beach, New York City & Nashville.  In addition to these trips I have also went on our biennial international trips to Europe on three occasions.  I have been able to visit the cities of Paris & Nice, France; Engelberg, Lucerne, Mt. Titlis & Lugano, Switzerland; Athens, Greece; Monaco; and Pisa, Ravenna, Verona, Assisi, Venice, Florence & Rome, Italy.  These trips are outstanding opportunities for our students to see and travel outside of WNY.  I have some of the pictures posted in the right hand column and the twitter feed we have used for the 2016 & 2018 trips to Europe and the senior trips in 2017 to Nashville and 2019 to Virginia Beach. 

         If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me via e-mail or telephone.

These are three videos from two of my favorite motivational speakers. At times we all need a little motivation, and listening to these two men still pushes me to this day. If you like what you see here, there are plenty more videos of both available on youtube.

Eric Thomas is a motivational speaker who holds a PhD from Michigan State University after dropping out of high school.

Inky Johnson is a motivational speaker who was an All American college football player & was projected to be a 1st round draft pick until a football injury ended his career in college, 10 games before he would have went pro. Instead of dwelling on the injury he has rose above adversity and shared his story to inspire others.
Eric Thomas & I
  • In December 2018 I was able to attend a conference in Brooklyn where I was able to listen to these two gentlemen speak.  This is a photo of Eric Thomas and myself from that conference.
