Hello! My name is Krista Harrison. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to teach you all about the wonders and real world applications of eighth grade Science!
I was born and raised in Indianapolis. I graduated from Purdue University with a Chemistry/Biochemistry degree and worked with genetic mutation before I went back to school to become a teacher. I received my Elementary Education License in 2002 and my Masters Degree in Elementary Education in 2006 from Ball State University.
I keep myself very busy with my 6 year-old twins; Sean and Reghan. We have an adorable Beagle named Snickers who watches over the kids, waiting for food to be dropped or left alone and a yellow Lab named Gus who loves to chase the kids around the house. We have recently added two cats to the mix; Zoe & Sebastian. My husband and I are constantly working on home improvement projects and trying to find time to bike with the kids and get together with friends. When the twins are older, we want to start traveling again and see the world together.
I am looking forward to an exciting and fun year of learning and exploring! Welcome to Carmel Middle School, Team Justice, and 8th Grade!
