Welcome to 4KC!
My name is Krista Cullen, and I started teaching in the Anoka-Hennepin district 20 years ago! I spent five years as a classroom teacher in 4th, 5th, and 2nd grades. I took a break for about 12 years to be a mom, and then three years ago was excited to come back as a Supplemental teacher at Jefferson Elementary. This fall I am even more thrilled to be back in the classroom at Sunrise! I love teaching 4th grade and 4th graders!
I received my Bachelor's Degree from University of Northwestern, St. Paul (formerly Northwestern College), and recently finished my Master's Degree in ESL from St. Mary's University. My husband, Mr. Jody Cullen, also teaches in Anoka-Hennepin - at Blaine High School! We live in Andover and have 3 sons: Josh, 15; Caleb, 13; and Daniel, 11. We also have a lovely dog, Lily. I love being outside in my vegetable and flower gardens, watching and photographing birds, reading, and singing or playing guitar or ukulele.
Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
