Ms. Kristin Woods

I am super excited about another awesome year in 6th grade ELAR!  This will be my 17th year as a teacher and my 6th year at FMS.  I love teaching 6th grade because it's the year kids make the transition from "little kids" to preteens.  It is amazing to watch our students grow both academically and socially, and I feel lucky to be a part of that.  My goals as a teacher are to instill a love of reading, make learning fun and memorable, and to build positive relationships based on empathy and acceptance.  

As for me personally, some of my favorite things are my nephews, cats, books, laughing, and cookies.  In my free time, you can find me baking, reading, volunteering with an animal rescue, and listening to true crime podcasts.

 

My favorite books:

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

Bleak House by Charles Dickens

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

Macbeth by William Shakespeare

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
