Dr. Krista Ottino

Welcome to Team Ottino 

Welcome to Fifth Grade and Team Ottino! I have had the privilege of teaching for St. Paul Public Schools for 31 years! I have taught 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th. I have also served as a coach in the areas of literacy, math, and behavior. I have a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education, a Masters degree in Instructional Systems and Technology, and a Doctorate degree in Educational Policy and Administration.

In addition to teaching 5th grade, I also teach two graduate level courses for Hamine University's Urban Education certificate program: Culturally Relevant Pedagogy and Managing the Urban Classroom.

I live in Hudson, WI with my husband and three dogs: Bella, Sadie and Rhett. Sadie and Bella are internationally certified as Pet Therapy dogs and visit a number of hospitals and nursing homes in our community with my husband, Rick. I enjoy gardening, reading, travelling and spending time with family and friends. I am also trying to teach myself how to crochet this year.

Please reach out with any questions, concerns or even to just touch base! Parents and family are a vital part of TEAM OTTINO!
