Kristin became actively involved at First Church in 2013 as a substitute teacher and co-chair of the Parent Committee for two years while her children attended preschool here. Prior to that she spent 10 years at The Hartford, providing classroom training instruction as well as developing educational materials. Realizing her passion for early childhood education, she spent four years in the Pre-K 5's before moving into the 3s classroom last year. Kristin is excited to continue sharing her passion for art, and nurture creativity among little minds in the 3's classes. Kristin lives in Old Wethersfield with her husband Mark and sons James and Luke. She enjoys spending time with her family and is an avid gardener and quilter.
