Kirsten is a Social Studies teacher at SCHS. Seven years ago she moved from Illinois to Boulder, CO where she pursued a degree in History and Education at CU Boulder. During her undergraduate program, she had the unique opportunity to participate in the Semester at Sea program where she traveled to three continents and thirteen different countries. Her experiences visiting multiple schools and orphanages in third world countries reinforced her passion to enter the field of education. She is currently continuing her studies at the University of Colorado where she is working on her masters degree in secondary education curriculum and literacy. In her free time, she enjoys water skiing, snow skiing, running, traveling, learning and spending quality time with family and friends.
