Welcome to my Classroom Website!
My name is Kristin Shively and I teach Salon, Spa & Barbering Careers, Advanced Apparel & Design Technology Careers, Color in Industry, Advanced Culinary Careers and College & Career Seminar here at STEP. I have been teaching for 16 years and spent my time before teaching in industry. I have experience in Sales and Marketing, Speaking, Credit and Collections and Training & Staff Development. Before STEP, I taught in both the Bloomington and Hopkins School Districts. I have teaching licenses in Family and Consumers Sciences, Creative Design Careers and Hospitality Service Careers. I'm also a Licensed Cosmetologist and Advance Practice Esthetician and work in a spa in Excelsior.
I have attended colleges at St. Cloud State University, Metropolitan State University, University of Minnesota, St. Paul Technical College, Minneapolis Community & Technical College and PCI Academy.
I hold my Master's Degree in Family Education, my Bachelor's Degree in Communications and my Minors are in Psychology and Adult Training and Development. I also have extensive ECFE/Parent-Education training along with my Myers-Briggs Certification (I'm as ENFP as they get). I am more than halfway through my National Board of Teaching Certification journey. Wish me luck!
I have two amazing kids, Cooper (16) and Griffin (13) and two furry children, a 19-pound cat named Dexter and a new kitten named Isaboo. We live in Minnetonka and, yes, I commute to Anoka everyday! I love to cook, decorate, garden, camp, fish, travel, shop, remodel and manage my two rental properties.
I love working with high school students and helping them figure out what their life passion is and what they should do when they grow up!

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 amazing things!
