Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Kristen Curtis

I am so happy to be teaching 2nd grade in Room 17 at Thorpe! I've been here since the school opened in 1999 and before that I taught in Anaheim and Orange. I've taught grades 1-6 and have also been the Teacher on Special Assignment. I specialize in teaching EL (English Learners) and GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) students. I've attended BYU, CSULB, and Concordia for my degrees including a Masters in Education and have also taken many classes at UCI and USC for GATE training. I love reading, writing, travel, decorating, art, flowers, my family, and a beautiful view.
