Hello, my name is Kristine Riel and I am a 2nd grade teacher at St. Paul’s. I grew up just south of here in Kenosha,WI where I attended Bethany Lutheran Grade School and Shoreland Lutheran High. In 1987 I graduated from Martin Luther College with a degree in elementary education. My husband Mark and I are blessed with one son, Nathan, who is a student at Wisconsin Lutheran High School.
I have had the privilege of teaching primary grades for 16 years. Eight of those years were spent at St. Philip’s in Milwaukee teaching grades 1-2 and two years teaching grades 3-4 at Peace in Green Lake, WI. During those years I also served as an organist and coach. The past 6 years I have been serving as a primary grade teacher here at St. Paul's and am currently teaching 2nd grade.
I am very excited to have the opportunity to help the 2nd graders in their educational development. However, what I love most about teaching is being able to help little ones grow in their faith and love for Jesus.
