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 and product training to employees. Realizing her passion for early childhood education, she spent four years in the Pre-K 5's classroom before moving into the 3's classroom in 2020. Kristin is excited to continue nurturing creativity among little minds in the 3's classes. She enjoys spending time with her family, is an avid gardener and quilter and lives in Old Wethersfield with her husband Mark, sons James and Luke, and their bluetick coonhound, Lily.
