Title: Video with Accountability

Kristin’s Short Story: I wanted to be a bio-engineer, but turned math teacher in college to fulfill my passion for building relationships with high school students to help them to succeed inside and outside the classroom. I aim to create intriguing lessons that challenge my students mathematically while pushing them to new limits. I am excited about what this second year of teaching has in store and the many challenges of teaching.

Kristin’s Story in a Nutshell: Students have great ideas that educators need to tap into, let students and educators hold one another accountable for continuous improvement.
