My name is Kristin Odegaard. This is my seventeenth year teaching and my third year at Lake Stevens High School. If I seem familiar, I taught first grade and kindergarten at Glenwood Elementary School for seven years. It is exciting to see my fellow Gators all grown up as Vikings. I currently teach three sections of first year Spanish, one section of second year Spanish, and one section of English Language Development for English Language Learners. Language Acquisition is my passion. I received my BA from the University of Washington, my MEd from City University, and MA from Pacific Oaks College. I am a Nationally Board Certified. I am an avid reader and I love to travel. I hope to instill a love of learning in all of my students.
