Meet Mrs. Evans
Hello, my name is Kristen Evans. I teach third grade at McDowell School. My teaching career began in Bay Village teaching third grade, and prior to teaching in Hudson, I was a Reading Specialist for the Medina City Schools. My educational background includes a Bachelor's Degree from Ohio University, a Master's Degree in Education from John Carroll University, a Reading Endorsement from Kent State University, and a K-12 Administrative License from Cleveland State University. I am also currently pursuing a doctoral degree from Kent State University. My husband and I live in Hudson along with our daughter Madison who will be attending Hudson High School this fall.
Teaching is truly my passion. I believe strongly in helping all students reach their highest potential. I work to achieve this by creating a classroom environment that nurtures each student to take risks, to grow as learners, to be accepting of others, and to build on each students' strengths. I believe that my role as a teacher is to work each day to create engaging learning spaces and to carefully determine the next learning steps for each student so that they are continually growing and progressing.
I also strongly believe in the importance of the home-school connection, and welcome open communication with parents. Teachers and parents as partners build a strong support system for students and are critical to school success.
I look forward to working with you and your child this school year!
