Mrs. Kristin DeMoss
When I first began attending Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana as a freshman, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. Throughout my first year of college I was fortunate to have many wonderful mentors provide great career advice as well as insightful observations about what they saw as my skills and passions. I came to realize that I wanted a job where I would get to do something different every day, have the opportunity to work with young people, and be able to make a difference that would last beyond my lifetime. Being an English teacher allows me to combine those goals with my love for reading and writing which is why I love coming to work everyday!
I began my teaching career in Plymouth, Indiana where I taught 9th and 11th grade English for six years. I served as sponsor for National Honor Society and Sunshine Society, and my "pet project" was Poetry Out Loud where I helped students prepare for a state-wide poetry recitation compeition.
In June of 2016 I married a wonderful man who lives in Downers Grove, so I left Plymouth to accept a position in District 308 teaching 6th grade Language Arts at Traughber Jr. High and 11th Grade English at Oswego High School. I am looking forward to supporting all things "Panther," getting to know this community more, and having a great year with my students!
