About Kristin Schut

Kristin has been teaching grade 8 part-time, mainly Science and Math, at ACMS since 2005 (minus maternity leaves). Prior to that, she taught at schools in the Cote d'Ivoire, Hungary, and Iowa. Some of the things she enjoys most as a teacher are sharing about her adventures in far off lands before she moved to Abbotsford and totally grossing her students out with dissections and parasite stories. Kristin enjoys reading the New York Times, daily walks around Fishtrap creek, gardening, and watching documentaries. She and her husband Kevin have three wonderful daughters, the oldest of whom will be coming to "Mommy's school" next year!
