Meet Mrs. Alheim!
Summer Success Teacher
Grade 1 - Math & Literacy
Hi!! My name is Kristyn Alheim and I am currently a first grade teacher at Shenendehowa. I have a Masters Degree in Elementary and Special Education. I recently received training in LETRS. This course is a professional learning course for instructors of reading, spelling, and related language skills. It provides educators with in-depth knowledge and tools that they can use with any reading program. LETRS helps educators understand “how” students learn to read and write, recognize the reasons “why” some students struggle, and determine “what” must be taught to increase student success. It is rooted in the Science of Reading (SOR).
I also have 14+ years of experience in public and private education. I grew up in Massachusetts and received my bachelors degree from Quinnipiac University where I met my husband. We then moved to Clifton Park to raise our family. I have a son and two daughters who keep me very busy. I love teaching and learning from my students.
In my free time, I love to paddle board, golf and walk my dog Bauer. I look forward to a summer of learning that is fun and engaging!
