Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Kristen Maldonado and I am the elementary Art teacher at Tointon, teaching grades K-5. I'm so excited for our second year, it's going to be great! I love teaching art because it fosters students' natural need to explore, experiment, express, and create! I hope to help your students grow as artists through a variety of different materials, tools, and techniques and have fun while doing it. This will be my 18th year teaching, all of it here in Greeley. I am also excited to be completing my Master's degree this year in Art Education. I have learned so much that I can immediately use with my students. I live in Windsor with my husband and two sons aged 3 and 5. My eldest son will be attending Tointon this year as a Kindergartener, yay! For fun, I love gardening, crafting, and spending time with my family. See you all soon!
