Kristen Van Stedum

Kindergarten Teacher



I have been a proud Columbian teacher for 23 years. I am now having the tremendous privilege of teaching many of my former kindergarteners’ children. I absolutely love kindergarten and getting to see those “a-ha” moments first hand (one of my absolute joys). Our motto in our classroom is “You can do it! ¡Si se puede!” We encourage struggle and mistakes as a way of growing. In my free time, I love to travel (especially to Costa Rica), dance, paddle board and spend time outdoors with friends and family. My favorite quote is “In a world where you can be anything, be kind”.
