Kristin Finn joined BCS as our First Grade teacher in the Fall of 2011. Before coming to Brookfield Christian, she taught first grade for two years at a Christian bilingual school in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. She has also taught one of our Second Grade classes. Mrs. Finn loves teaching first and second graders because of their passion for life and learning.
Kristin grew up in Holland, Michigan, and attended Holland Christian schools. She graduated from Calvin College with a degree in Elementary Education and majors in Spanish and Special Education. In addition to having lived in Honduras for two years, Kristin has studied in Mexico and the Dominican Republic. Kristin and her husband live in a western suburb of Milwaukee. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, reading, photography, traveling, running, and drinking coffee.
Mrs. Finn’s Mission Statement
“As a Christian teacher, it is my goal to encourage young believers. Teaching students to read, respond, and apply the Bible to daily life is so important! ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road…’ (Deuteronomy 6:6-7). I see my students as covenant children who are individually created in God’s image, redeemed by Christ’s sacrifice, and guided by the Spirit.
Second graders’ curiosity and love of learning make my grade classroom a vibrant place to be! The students have seemingly endless energy, excitement, and readiness to learn. It is my responsibility as their teacher to guide them as they grow and desire to discover more about God’s creation. It is my prayer that God will bless our walk together through this year!
Having recently taught in Honduras has given me not only experience in teaching, but also a broader world view. Central America has helped shape my understanding, and my experiences have enabled me to see the body of Christ in a more complete way. I hope to share this passion with students at BCS to help them broaden their understandings of God’s incredible world! I am excited to ‘walk along the road’ with students, families, and staff at Brookfield Christian!”
