Grade 2

My name is Mrs. Kristen Grondin. I am the second grade teacher at St. John the Baptist School. I have been teaching at St. John the Baptist for the past 6 years. I attended Roger Williams University with a major in Marine Biology before switching my major to Elementary Education. I transferred to Bay Path College to finish my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education with a minor in Science and History in 2004. I completed my student teaching at Veteran's Park Elementary School in Ludlow in a third grade setting in 2007.  I received my Bachelor’s of Education in 2007 along with my Elementary Education Certification. I first taught as a substitute teacher at Academy Hill for the Gifted and Talented in 2007 before being hired at St. John the Baptist School. In 2009 I received the Teacher of the Month Award from Country Bank and Kix 97.5. I happily continue to teach at St. John the Baptist School as well as substituting in the second grade CCD program at Mary, Mother of Hope Parish in Springfield, MA.
