Fourth Grade

Kristine Brand


My name is Kristine Brand and I look forward to welcoming your fourth graders to the 2018-19 school year! During the past fourteen years that I have worked in Education, I have had the opportunity to be a classroom teacher for nearly every grade level from Kindergarten to 5th grade.  I have also had many years of working as a Title 1 Reading Teacher, where I provided targeted literacy instruction to struggling readers in small groups. I have been teaching at Bahia Vista since 2008.  I work with a group of dynamic teachers whom I enjoy collaborating with on creative and inspiring lessons for our students. It is my goal to ignite students’ curiosity and to guide them onto a path of life-long learning. I was born and raised in San Francisco and have earned all of my degrees at San Francisco State University – a Bachelor’s in Theater Arts, and a Teaching Credential and Master’s in Elementary Education. When I am not teaching, I enjoy hiking, camping, taking yoga and dance classes, traveling, learning about history and nature, and spending time with my family.
