A Cincinnati resident and native, Ms. Kist is proud to be teaching at a school much like the one she grew up in (St. Therese Little Flower). At that time, she played school at home, and in 8th grade was considered “most likely to teach kindergarten.” Although she never taught kindergarten, she did start her career teaching second grade at Little Flower.
With Little Flower’s closure, she was fortunate to obtain a teaching position at Our Lady of Grace in 2008 in second grade, and then fourth grade. She is thrilled to be returning to OLG, and even more excited to be teaching third grade! She is very confident her teaching experiences, Master’s degree in Reading, and recent coursework in Orton Gillingham methods will benefit the students tremendously. Her classroom and teaching philosophy have centered around an idea of the importance of Rules, Rituals, and Routines. Her classroom focuses on structure provided by these three R’s, as well as an atmosphere of productive learning alongside celebration of successes.
