I'm Kirsten Pieterick, and I will be teaching Foundations, Life Science (7), and Earth Science (8). I am new to Capitol Hill, so I'm really excited to meet everyone. I began my teaching career at Battle Creek Middle School. Before that I graduated from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities with my Masters in Secondary Education and my Bachelors of Science in Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology.
I love that with science we can explore what we don't understand. In my classroom, everyone's voice is heard and valued. We work out our misunderstandings together as a team. School is meant to be fun, but its primary goal is to be a place of education.
I'm really excited for the year to come. Each year of middle school is so important for the students, but this year, it's an important one for me too! I will be getting married in October, so get ready for the name change!
