Mrs. Kristin Case

Kristin teaches 5th grade at Pine Avenue Elementary in Alma, Michigan with her husband / team teacher, Jonathon Case. Together, they share 54 students and are responsible for teaching all core subjects.

Currently, she is most proud of their Reading Workshop, where they successfully hook kids into developing a love for reading. Last school year their students read a total of 1,682 books!

Professionally, she is currently taking classes to learn how to improve her students' quality of writing through the use of digital tools. She hopes to become a digital writing leader in her school, helping other teachers to begin the transition as well.

She received an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from Central Michigan University, and a Masters in the Art of Teaching from Marygrove College. She has one son, two stepsons, a stepdaughter, and a 4-pound yorkie, and enjoys when they can find the time to all be together.
