Teacher Profile

My name is Kristin Compher and I have lived in the Winchester area for about 3 years.  I am recently married to my husband, Pete, and have a dog named Tyler and a cat named Kit Kat.

I graduated from Radford University in 2003 with a B.S. in Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations and a minor in Fine Art.  I worked in the marketing field for a few years and decided that this was not the career I wanted to pursue.  I have a couple of friends who teach elementary school and I began volunteering in their classrooms when I had free time.  I absolutely loved it and decided to make the switch into teaching.  I am currently pursuing my certification and licensure in PreK-6 education from Old Dominion University via Lord Fairfax.

 In my free time, I love to read.  I especially enjoy historical fiction and biographies.  Whenever I get a chance, I try to go the beach.  I grew up in Virginia Beach and definitely miss being only 15 minutes from the shore!  The mountains are nice but you just can't beat sand in your toes and sea spray in your face.

 

I'm looking forward to a fun and successful year!
