Mrs. Kristin Shafer


I am so excited to begin my fourth year in second grade!

I was raised in Tucson, with deep family roots in Arizona. I earned my undergraduate dual-degree in elementary and special education from Northern Arizona University, and fell in love with Flagstaff. 

I have taught kindergarten inclusion in California, as well as self-contained and fifth grade special education in New York. Somewhere in the mix, I earned my master's degree in special education from Grand Canyon University. Although I have lived all over the country, I left my heart in Flagstaff. We returned, eager to raise our two sons in this beautiful region, both of which attend Sechrist. Camping, running, reading, hiking, and backpacking are my passions outside of parenting and teaching.  

For me, education is a beautiful process to watch unfold. I love making discoveries with students and sharing in the learning process.
