Hello! My name is Kristyn Griesbach and I will be joining the 1st Grade team as a Teaching Assistant this year. I did my student teaching in Brentwood and I served as the 4th Grade T.A. last year.
I grew up in Eastern Iowa. I received my Bachelor’s in Psychology with a minor in Spanish from Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri. I went on to receive my Master of Arts in Elementary Education from Truman as well, graduating in December 2016.
Just a few fun facts about me: I have a big, fluffy cat named Dinah who is my absolute favorite; I love traveling and studied abroad in Seville, Spain; my favorite sports team is the Iowa Hawkeyes football team (I also love Cardinals baseball); I am a big fan of Star Wars and Harry Potter; and finally, one of my favorite things is to read on a rainy or snowy day, cuddled up under a blanket.
I cannot wait to have another great year McGrath. “It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” -J.K. Rowling (Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets)
