Kristen Wood – Lead Teacher

Hello, I’m Kristen! I’ve been professionally teaching young children since 1998, and with the FitKids team since 2016. I earned my B.S. in Early Childhood Education, as well as my B.S. in English Professional Writing from Salem State University. I hold a Massachusetts Teaching License for PreK-2 and am credentialed in New Hampshire as an Early Childhood Professional Educator Level 3/Mentor Specialist. I have worked with infants all the way up to the elementary grades. Preparing children for kindergarten in Pre-K is my passion, especially helping them develop the Social-Emotional Skills and Executive Functions needed for the public-school classrooms. I have a knack for knowing just how much of a challenge to mix in with each of my lessons to create feelings of accomplishment and success in each child as they learn. I love the rewards that come with connecting with each child on an individual basis each day as their teacher.
