Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Mrs. Seitz's kindergarten classroom! Kristin Seitz is originally from St. Louis, Missouri, but moved to Birmingham to attend Samford University. At Samford, Kristin earned her bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and certifications in the four following areas: Early Childhood Education, Early Childhood Special Education, Elementary Education, and Elementary Collaborative. Although Kristin is certified to teach through sixth grade, she is very passionate about early childhood education. Kristin believes young children learn best when they feel safe, when they are provided developmentally appropriate challenges, and when they have opportunities to learn through play and hands-on experiences. Kristin takes her job as a kindergarten teacher with great responsibility since she is the first person to instill a love for school and learning in her students. Prior to Crestline, Kristin taught both pre-kindergarten and kindergarten in Birmingham. She is so excited to meet all of her wonderful students and start the 2021-2022 school year!
