Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Kirsten Raymond

My name is Mrs. Raymond and I have been teaching for eight years.  This is my third year teaching 4th grade at Woodland School.  Previously, I taught 3rd grade at Woodland and  4th and 5th grade with the Mendon Upton Public Schools.    I have a BA in Theatre and Humanities from Providence College and a Master's in Elementary Education from Regis College.   I have also taught theatre and dance for over 25 years and have established theatre programs through town recreation programs and at Miscoe Hill School in Mendon. This year I will be a drama director at Nipmuc High School in Upton.
I enjoy incorporating creativity in the classroom while still maintaining a positive class environment and predictable classroom routines.  I believe that all students need to work to get along with one another in the classroom.  They should also be willing to assist others who need their help.  All students have strengths and it is important that we share them.  A caring class environment will allow a child to learn and reach his or her full potential.
