About Mrs. Tam!

Meet the Teacher!


Hello! My name is Mrs. Kristin Tam. I live in Washington, DC with my husband and my very lazy, lazy dog Waylon. 

I graduated from Frostburg State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. I than went back to school and earned my teaching certificate. I am currently taking classes through Drexel University to receive my Masters of Education Degree.  I have been teaching for 5 years. During that time I have worn many different hats. Those hats include long term substitute, resourse teacher, tutor, second grade assistant, fifth grade teacher, and lastly a second grade teacher. This will be my third year as a second grade teacher at St. Ambrose. I love it!
