I am a first grade teacher starting my eighth year! I am a reading specialist at the school where I teach first grade as well. I have my Masters in Reading Education. I am also the author of a new children's book, Seamore the Starfish! http://www.seamorethestarfish.com
Always positively reinforce students. I feel that positivity shines through and really helps the students learn through any learning style. I am friendly but firm, and I think it helps establish a good set of values in the classroom.
Teacher of the Year at my school for 2011.
Undergraduate degree in 2006 Masters of Reading Education from East Stroudsburg University in 2011.
I am a newlywed and on the side I enjoy working out and spending time in the kitchen. I enjoy spending time with my husband and our Akita, Koby! I also blog at creativewithkristyn.com :)
