Hello! My name is Kristy Standiford and I will be teaching a creative writing class for SCATS this year. I currently teach Language Arts and Social Studies to 4th and 5th graders at Southern Oaks Elementary School. I love reading and writing, and it is very exciting to work with a group of gifted and motivated students. I will help bring out the student’s creativity while teaching techniques to strengthen their writing and help them explore their capabilities.
On a personal note, I am married to a fellow educator and have an 11 month old son, Lincoln. He will turn 1 on the last day of the camp! Becoming a mother has been my greatest accomplishment and I have become a better teacher because of him. I have been teaching at the same school for 6 years and truly enjoying teaching every single day. I hope that I am able to share my passion for teaching and writing during the next two weeks.
