Kristin, originally from Arlington, Texas, has been with GISD for 2 years. When asked about the favorite part of her job, Kristin responded, "I love being a mentor and supporter to my students, and watching them learn and grow. I love interacting with them, I love learning from them, and I love helping them understand the content. I especially love watching my robotics teams brainstorm and problem solve and getting excited about what they accomplished."
