Welcome to 2nd grade at Winton Elementary! I am thrilled to be your child's teacher for this exciting year of learning. 2nd graders investigate many awesome curricular topics, work collaboratively, and gain greater independence and responsibility.
My name is Mrs. Kristin Gibney. I have been teaching since 2001. I have taught every grade level K-5 for at least one year. I have had the priviledge of working for 3 school districts in my career, winding up here at CDA. I have enjoyed every one of them. My husband, daughter and I have been in Idaho since 2019 and absolutely LOVE everything about it. We can often be found outside having family time on our patio grilling up some yummy BBQ, or at the pool in the summer or sledding down our dog-run hill in the yard in the winter. We have two fur-friends; a very old boxer dog named Dakota and a small chihuahua mix named Tizzy. I LOVE reading and can be found lost in a good fiction book often. I enjoy drawing/doodling and crafting but have trouble finding time to fit those hobbies in.
I'm currently pursuing my Masters of Arts in Reading to better serve my young readers here at CDAPS. This will be a great year of learning both academically and socially for my students and myself. I look forward to partnering with you this year.
