Hi! I’m Kristian Burrell and I'm your child’s kindergarten teacher. This is my 10th year teaching at Finley Farms and teaching kindergarten. I love teaching 5 and 6 year olds and I am excited to work with you and your child. This year is already off to a great start. J

About Me

I graduated from ASU-Polytechnic with my Bachelor’s in elementary education and received my Master’s in early childhood. I interned and student taught here at Finley Farms and landed my dream job as a full-day kindergarten teacher. I am privileged to be working at one of the top “A” rated schools in the district.

I enjoy relaxing and traveling with my boyfriend. We have visited a total of 15 states so far! We try to make it a goal to visit a new state during my break times. We also enjoy being with our families, hiking, going to the movies, going out to eat (pizza-mmm!), and watching and attending D-back games.

I'm a HUGE family person. My nephew and niece keep me very busy. I enjoy watching my nephew play baseball on his high school and traveling teams. I also adore playing with my cute, but very active and imaginative three year old niece.

During my down time (which is rare) I enjoy reading books on my Nook, meeting up with friends, going shopping, and just enjoying the quiet. J Lastly, I have one dog, a Labrador retriever mix named Hallie (6) who I rescued at a local rescue.

"You're off to great places!
Today is your day.
Your mountain is waiting.
So. . . 
Get on your way!"

Oh the Places You'll Go
