Hi! I’m Kristian Burrell and I'm your child’s kindergarten teacher.
This is my 10th year teaching at Finley Farms and teaching
kindergarten. I love teaching 5 and 6 year olds and I am excited to work with
you and your child. This year is already off to a great start. J
I graduated from ASU-Polytechnic with my Bachelor’s in elementary education and received my Master’s in early childhood. I interned and student taught here at Finley Farms and landed my dream job as a full-day kindergarten teacher. I am privileged to be working at one of the top “A” rated schools in the district.
I enjoy relaxing and traveling with my boyfriend. We have visited a
total of 15 states so far! We try to make it a goal to visit a new
state during my break times. We also enjoy being with our families, hiking, going to the
movies, going out to eat (pizza-mmm!), and watching and attending D-back games.
I'm a HUGE family person. My nephew and niece keep me very busy. I
enjoy watching my nephew play baseball on his high school and traveling teams.
I also adore playing with my cute, but very active and imaginative three year
During my down time (which is rare) I enjoy reading books on my Nook,
meeting up with friends, going shopping, and just enjoying the quiet. J Lastly, I have one dog,
a Labrador retriever mix named Hallie (6) who I rescued at a local rescue.

Today is your day.
Your mountain is waiting.
So. . .
Get on your way!"
