About Kristina


Bio

I have three years of experience working in schools. I just finished my first year of teaching in my own classroom. I taught 5th through 8th graders, so I am familiar with both the academic and social needs of young adolescents. I student taught in both Columbus City Schools and Westerville City Schools. I love to read and write; along with discussing books, poems, etc.

I have three years of experience working in schools. I just finished my first year of teaching in my own classroom. I taught 5th through 8th graders, so I am familiar with both the academic and social needs of young adolescents. I student taught in both Columbus City Schools and Westerville City Schools. I love to read and write; along with discussing books, poems, etc.

My favorite part about being an educator is the relationships I build with my students; I want my students to feel as though I am someone they can talk to about anything from a novel, to friends, to Pretty Little Liars, to their personal dreams. I am an honest teacher and expect honesty back. I also have an open-door policy where I encourage questions, outside-of-the-box thinking, and inquiry. I believe in student choice because if the child doesn't feel passionate about what they are learning, then I am not doing my job well.

I have my Bachelor's in English-Literature where reading and writing were a daily requirement. I continue to read every chance I have. I read romance, biographies, dystopian, fantasies, science fiction, and even the classics. I also studied Middle Childhood Education at Otterbein University with a focus in English-Language Arts.

I know reading and writing can be overwhelming and, sometimes daunting, but the more you understand the basics, the easier and more enjoyable it becomes. Get ahold of me and I will show you how to make reading and writing a pleasant experience. :)
