Hello and welcome!
My name is Kristen Wyatt and I'm thrilled to be joining the amazing staff of Wren Middle School. I will be teaching 6th Grade English Language Arts. My wish for this year is to make you fall in love with reading and to watch you grow as readers, writers, and successful students.
I've always dreamed of being a teacher! So far, I've taught all grades except for Kindergarten and highschool.
I was born and raised in Scranton, Pennsylvania. I graduated from East Stroudsburg University with my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. I taught in Scranton schools for 8 years before moving to Portland, Maine. I taught for 3 years in Portland before moving to Powdersville, SC. Last year I taught in Greenville County Schools and I'm finally happy to be at "home" here at Anderson District One.
My husband, Matt, and I moved from Portland, Maine in August of 2018. We live in Powdersville. While we miss the ocean, the lighthouses, and all the lobster, we fell in love with this area! We have one dog, Hank, and two cats, Celia and Carla. We're having fun exploring the surrounding area, enjoying downtown Greenville, and spend some weekends taking our jeep around different trails in the area.
As the school year gets underway, please check back for updates. I'm looking forward to this year and can't wait to see all that is in store for us!
