Welcome to 4V!
My name is Kristin Vahldick and this is my second year at Western Avenue. I grew up in Lisle and attended school in Naperville. I graduated from Illinois State University in May 2014. I double majored in elementary education and Spanish. I spent a semester abroad in Spain. After I graduated, I spent one year as a first grade teacher and one year as a fourth grade teacher in other school districts, and I spent one year as a permanent building substitute before coming to Western Avenue. I am very excited to be teaching here in Geneva!
I love to travel, read, run, and spend time with my family. I am looking forward to this school year and getting to know your children. I believe in a positive learning environment and building a classroom community. I know we are going to have a wonderful year!
