LouAnne Kristensen

I began my career here in Birchwood in 1986. I was hired as a part time teacher and worked with the Title 1 program. A few years later, I became the Kindergarten teacher. I taught Kindergarten for 7 years and absolutely loved it. However, when the 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Sirek, retired, I felt I was ready to take on a new challenge and applied for the position. I have been teaching 3rd grade ever since and also, absolutely love it.
My husband, John, and I have two children, Kayla and Karl. Both of them graduated from Birchwood. I even got to teach each of them in 3rd grade. Both of them went on to college and graduated from UW-Madison, of which we are very proud. We all love being part of this unique community.
