Kristen was born and raised in South Burlington, VT and graduated from UVM in with a B.A in Child Psychology. After graduation, she moved to Manhattan for eight years and earned her M.S. in Elementary Education from CUNY-Hunter and became a licensed teacher in NYC. Her first teaching experience was at a small Montessori School on the Upper West Side where she taught in a multiage classroom of first through third graders. Kristen returned to Vermont in 2000 to start a family and continued teaching part-time in Williston until her children, Griffin and Sadie, were both in school. Prior to joining MCS, Kristen had been teaching at Heartworks/Renaissance School as both a pre-school and second grade teacher. Kristen is thrilled to be returning to Mater Christi School for her third year.
In her spare time, Kristen loves going on road trips with her family, reading, playing tennis and dreaming of the beach.
What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.
