Mrs. Kridel -
I am thrilled to be spending my 14th year of teaching at Meadowlark Elementary. I have spent 11 years teaching first and second grade. Now I am very excited to begin teaching my third year of third grade. Let our adventure begin!
For the past several years, I have been a Battle of the Books coach. I have read several of the books from this year's list already and I can't wait to share them with the class. I am also involved with the KC Club and I hope to see links lining the hallway soon! I am looking forward to another productive and fun-filled year in both of these areas.
My husband and I were born and raised in Southern California and moved to North Carolina 14 years ago. While living in San Diego, I completed my B.A. in Liberal Studies from San Diego State University and received my teaching credential there as well.
We have a thirteen year old daughter in eighth grade at Meadowlark Middle and a nine year old son in fourth grade. We enjoy spending our time outside playing, taking walks, going to softball and baseball games. I also love to read and my children share this passion as well. We enjoy traveling back to California and Arizona to visit family whenever possible!
