Biography

I'm Mrs. Kistemann (a.k.a. Mrs. K, Ms. Kiss).  I graduated from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, in April 2007. Go Cougars!  Prior to graduating, I lived in Russia for a year and a half doing volunteer work. 

Teaching is in my blood. I am the youngest of 6 and come from a family of educators (parents, siblings, grandparents and cousins- all teachers, professors and administrators). My husband, Jonathan, is attending ASU as well. We love school! This is my first year at Moreno Elementary and I couldn’t be more excited. Prior to coming here I taught at Kyrene de los Ninos and Eagleridge Enrichment Program. 

Some of my hobbies include baking, blogging, photography, dancing, playing sports, crafting, singing, and playing the piano. I love Clausen dill pickles (sweet pickles are an abomination) and all things dark chocolate. I am looking forward to teaching this 16-17 school year and getting to know you.

Ghandi said it best!
