Teacher Profile

family

My name is Kristen Huebner.  This my 9th year teaching, but my first year teaching first grade!  I knew that I wanted to be a teacher when I was young.  My fifth grade teacher inspired me to pursue this dream.  I went to Houghton College in Allegany County, NY for my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Psychology.  My teaching career started in a 5th grade classroom in CT.  After my first year teaching, my husband and I got married and moved to NY, where I was hired to teach 6th grade.  After a year of teaching 6th grade, I transferred to 2nd grade where I stayed for four years.  During this time, I attended Cortland University for a master's degree in Literacy and completed work for my Literacy Specialist certificate.  Also during this time, my husband and I grew our family with the birth of our son, Noah, in 2005 and our daughter, Karis, in 2007.  My final year teaching in NY, I transferred to a kindergarten classroom. 

In June of 2008, our family moved back to VT, where my husband grew up.  I was hired at Albert Bridge to teach 4th grade.  It was thrilling to know that I was going to teach in the same school my husband attended!  I was blessed enough to have the opportunity to transfer to first grade for this year.  I am looking forward to a new challenge!
