About Kristina

I have previously worked for a Head Start organization in Norton, VA and owned my own daycare for seven years. Additionally I have worked with children as a classroom teacher and bus driver at our home church in Wise. Children seem to naturally gravitate to me due to my quite demeanor and caring attitude.

I have two children of my own, a daughter who just graduated high school and a son who is 27. What I love most about teaching children is when I see the brightness of their faces when after working so diligently to try to learn a new concept and the thrill of being empowered at their success.

I understand the basics and have learned a few tricks over the years. My best attribute is diligence in practice. Math comes easily to some and is more challenging for others but all can learn to do better it just takes time and am willing to search for all necessary resources to help in the challenging areas.

Loving to read myself and helping a child who thinks he/she can't read, figure out letters first, then their sounds and putting those together to form the initial sight words and teaching them to visually picture words in their imaginations when pictures are not available.

Patience and teaching that skill to children and constant encouragement has always been a successful method for me in the past.

I have just moved back to the Pikeville area where I graduated high school and look forward to meeting new students and their parents to see if I can help students grades and self esteem improve. School lessons just as life lessons are not always easy to master but with patience and a will to do better, skills can be improved and sometimes even mastered.
