Kristen Gurian's website


I have been a secondary English teacher for 14 years. I am certified in both English/Language Arts and English as a Second Language. I have been teaching ESL for the past 8 years and teach both Language Arts and ESL as needed. I am passionate about working with students and helping students reach their maximum potential.

This is my first year teaching at Dakota Ridge High School and I'm excited about the growing ESL population at DRHS! I have experience teaching 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, and 11th grade Language Arts, Reading, intervention courses for reading and writing, ESL 1-4, and ESL intervention courses.

I enjoy working with a diverse student population. I believe all students can be successful. My interests include traveling, reading, skiing, running, biking, yoga, and practicing Spanish.
