Ms. Kristen Koch

As a child, I always had two passions- school and science. My family always knew I would grow up working in the field of science, because of all the rocks I would collect on outings and questions I would ask about organisms. The wonderful part about science is that it is all around us! My passions for school and science have driven my life to explore and travel, research new discoveries, and graduate from the University fo Iowa (GO HAWKS!) with a bachelor's degree in Secondary Science for Biology and Chemistry. I am so excited to help you find the meaningful way in which science connects to your life. I want to provide you the opportunity to have meaningful interactions with the world around yourself so that you are equipped to be scientifically literate members of your community. I believe in providing a well rounded education by supporting you in all aspects of your academic career. It is important to me to help students grow emotionally, academically, and socially throughout their four years. 

Throughout the school year, you will come to find that I love movies, sports, food, and cartoons. You may find me around school tutoring students, attending and coaching sporting events, catching student plays/musicals, in science olympiad, stopping by MSA, sponsoring Key Club or working football games! I am always looking for new things to get invovled with! Make sure you share what clubs, activities, and sports you're in so I can come support you and Oswego East! If you see me, make sure you smile, wave, and say hi! Don't forget to Science!

See you around, 

Ms. Koch
