Degrees and Certifications:

Miss Kristen Raines


Kindergarten, Howard Norman Elementary 

I moved back to Austin from Houston, Texas last year and I am still so excited about the Astros being the World Series CHAMPS! All of my family lives in Houston, and I visit them often. I taught Kindergarten for 6 years in Lake Travis, first grade for two years and fourth grade for a year in Conroe, last year I taught second grade here at Howard Norman and I am back to where my teacher heart belongs in Kindergarten!  I am so happy and excited to be back and can't believe I am starting my 11th year teaching!

My biggest hobby is exercising! I work out at Voodoo Crossfit in north Austin, and I have also run somewhere around 10 full marathons and 15 half marathons in the last 7 years. I love going hiking, fly fishing, dancing, laughing with my family and friends and taking spontaneous road trips!

I grew up in the Houston area and went to Texas Tech University for my undergrad. I was actually born on Texas Tech’s campus, so I like to say I was born a Red Raider!

I am so excited to get to know you and your families better this year and look forward to a great school year.
