All About Me

Hello Fourth Graders!

My name is Kristen Roden and I love teaching! After teaching Kindergarten for 17 years, I decided to try something new and refreshing! I figured, "Why not, let's go for the gusto!" I switched from Kindergarten to Fourth grade science and social studies. This is my fifth year and I am LOVING it! I just finished earning my Masters of Education in Early Childhood! Go Lumberjacks (really I am a UH Cougar at heart!).

I have 18 year old twins and a 12 year old daughter who is at Bear Branch! We are involved in many extracurricular activities which keep me pretty busy. In my spare time I love to go to the gym so I can do some spinning in spin class or some body combat where I get to beat up imaginary people! I'm sure the gym would work much better if I would just stop eating BUT what can I say? I love food!

This year will be an incredible journey for all of us!  Please feel free to contact me anytime. Either by phone or email and I promise to get back to you as quickly as possible. Let's have a fantastic year in fourth!


This year in science we will cover three areas:
Earth science
Physical science
Life science
