Ms. Cristin Altepeter

Teaching background: It’s been my dream to be a teacher since I can remember! My dad was a college professor and my mom a preschool teacher, so I picked something in-between - elementary school! I taught 4th grade for a handful of years and then when it was time, I chose to homeschool Eden (& we had the BEST time!). During that time, I also started teaching at a homeschool enrichment program and helped homeschool a few families as well. A couple of years ago I took on the challenge of teaching & working with the Boys & Girls Club (& that wore me out!). I’ve taught everything from Kindergarten to high school (& even tutored an AIMS student for several years!) 

Why do I love teaching? I love connecting with kids - just where they are! I appreciate how real they are. I like asking questions - about learning and about each student. I believe connecting with students on a personal level is where learning starts. A favorite quote of mine is: “I don’t care how much you know until I know how much you care.” (T. Roosevelt) and I take that into my classrooms and teaching experiences with me. I also love learning along with my students - I won’t hesitate to admit that I don’t have all the answers but that I’m happy to figure things out with them. I love teaching because I love learning! And kids are hilarious!

Why do I love teaching? I love teaching because I love connecting with my students and finding creative ways to get concepts across and make learning fun. Seeing the moment in which content clicks is so rewarding! I also have a passion for changing the stigma associated with math. My goal is for students to gain confidence in and excitement for the subject and understand how math applies to their daily lives.
