Hello! My name is Kristen East and I'm very excited be teaching at Civic Memorial High School this year. I just to moved to Illinois this past summer from South Carolina with my boys Ryan (6) and Jacob (4) and our dog Molly. I've been teaching Special Education teacher for 10 years and have taught in Connecticut, Massachusetts, California, North Carolina, and South Carolina. I love to travel, cook, and spend time outdoors with my family, especially hiking and camping.
