Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Cruze

My name is Michael Cruze. I am one of the originals that had the privilege to open up Yates Mill Elementary School. I started my Art Education at Johnston Community College and earned an Associate’s Degree in Graphic Design. I continued my education at Barton College to complete my degree in Art Education. After 19 years in the classroom, I still love teaching art and spending my days with the kids. I love to see our kids’ eyes light up when they impress themselves.

When I am away from YMES, I love hanging with my family, playing corn hole, throwing darts and cheering on the black and gold of the Pittsburgh Steelers on game days.
