Paul Kraimer


Hi, my name is Mr. Kraimer. I am the Career & Technical Education (CTE) Radio teacher at North Community High School. I came to North at the start of the 2015-16 school year. I bring with me nearly 20 years of experience in the Broadcast industry and 10 years of teaching radio to college students. I look forward to working with all the students at North and hope you look forward to hearing them on the air on Jazz 88 (listen here) as they get comfortable with Jazz with Class.

Career & Technical Education (CTE) is a GREAT career pathway. You can click here to find out more.
