Hello, my name is Kristine Riel and I am the 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 14 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 four years I have been the 1st grade teacher here at St. Paul's and I am now looking forward to serving as one of the team teachers for 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.
