Kristen Barr

6/7 Team- Human Ecology and Writing

Upon graduating from The Community School, Kristen headed east for summer school in New York City. After a 14 year odyssey, she happily found her way home to the Wood River Valley and The Sage School. While in NYC, Kristen studied film at Fordham University and received a Master’s Degree in Childhood Education and Teaching Literacy from Bank Street College of Education. For six wonderful years, she taught at the Packer Collegiate Institute in Brooklyn. At Packer, she also worked in partnership with the Ndonyo Wasin Primary School in Northern Kenya. Kristen’s passion for teaching is fueled by her love of investigating, laughing, and learning alongside her students and her fellow educators. Now a Hailey resident she can be found hiking, reading a good book, and working on her new home.
