My name is Kiersten Morris, and this is my second year teaching in Minneapolis. I recently graduated from the University of Minnesota with my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Education. I am very passionate about working in and being a part of the Minneapolis community. I believe that all students are capable of being successful, and I hope to be one of many resources on their road to success. I absolutely love teaching! I taught third grade at Waite Park last year and I did a year of student teaching in a second grade classroom in Minneapolis as well.


When I’m not teaching, I love to spend time with my family, my roommates, and my boyfriend! I like Starbucks, going to Target, trying new restaurants, every single kind of donut, and being outside. Colorful pens and markers make me happy. You can always catch me snacking on something (usually something cheesy!). My favorite children's book is The Day the Crayons Quit, and my favorite subject in school was Math.


I am very excited to be a part of the Waite Park Community and I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
