Ms. Kristin Mathieu
The 2020-21 school year is my 18th year of teaching English and my fourth year teaching at Como Park Senior High School. I currently teach English 9, English 9 Accelerated, English 12, and A.P. Literature and Composition. Prior to joining the staff at Como Park Sr. High, I spent 14 years as an English teacher in Milwaukee Public Schools.
Before I became a teacher, I was a professional pastry chef. I am a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Hyde Park, NY and I lived and worked in Munich, Germany. In addition, I spent 20 years as a member of the Wisconsin Air National Guard retiring as a Master Sergeant in 2016.
When I am not at school, I like to spend time with my family including my husband and 12 year old son. I enjoy yoga, working out, biking, shopping, reading, and traveling. My family and I travel to Europe every two years and these are just some of the countries we have visited regularly: Germany, Croatia, Bosnia, Slovenia, France, Italy, Belgium and the U.K. It is our goal to retire to Eastern Europe one day.
I love the Como community, and look forward to getting to know and work with my students. Teaching is definitely my bliss and teaching here in MN is a dream. I love it here!
