Ms Kristi earned her B.A. in Early Childhood Education from SIUE.  She has taught at numerous preschools and 1st grade.  She and her husband, Blake, have two children, Blake Jr, and Peyton.  Peyton is a Discovery School graduate.  She substitute taught at Discovery starting in 2011 and is thrilled to teach here.  She loves to watch children explore on their own and see what they discover.  Hands-on learning is the key to a happy preschooler!
