Ms. Kristin Hendrick
Hello & Welcome to First Grade!
I am so excited to work with you and your child this year! Please feel free to click around my website to learn about me and my procedures. If there is specific information that you are looking for and cannot find it, please email me and I will be happy to answer any questions!
I have been teaching first grade in the Upper Merion Area School District for 7 years. This is my second year at Gulph Elementary School. Before coming to Gulph, I taught at Bridgeport Elementary School for 4 years and at Candlebrook Elementary School for 1 year. For two of these years, I co-taught with an ESL specialist and learned a lot about working with our ESL students. Prior to teaching first grade, I worked for the Upper Merion Area School District for several years, where I was a per diem, short-term, long-term, and building substitute.
I earned a dual certificate in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from Millersville University in 2007. I am currently enrolled in West Chester University where I am working towards my Master's Degree for Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) as well as my English as a Second Language (ESL) Specialist Certification.
I was born and raised in West Chester, PA and I currently still reside there. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, visiting my childhood vacation home in Long Beach Island, traveling, reading, fishing, going to concerts, and cooking. I am the middle child and have two brothers, one of which is also a teacher in Florida.
