Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Kristen Nazarko, and I am so excited to be your child’s third grade math and science teacher for the year. This is my 7th year teaching, and my 8th year here at Maplebrook. I did my student teaching at MBE in second grade. Following student teaching, I graduated from the University of Houston (GO COOGS!). I then took a job at MBE in the computer lab, before I started in my own classroom. This is my 7th year in third grade!
I grew up in the Humble area, and attended schools around town. I went to Timbers Elementary, Atascocita Middle School, and Humble High School (AHS wasn’t open yet). So, Humble ISD has always been like home to me.
I have a cat named Mia--she's actually my parent's cat, but I call her "Sister". Silly, right? During football season, I love to go to games and support my Houston Cougars. Fall is my favorite time of the year! Spring is a close second.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions throughout the year. The best way to get ahold of me is through email, as our phones do not ring during the school day. It’s going to be a GREAT year!
