Hi! I am Kristen Crandall and I will be your Jr. High history teacher. I am so happy to be teaching my 2nd year at Ascent Academy! I love history and love sharing with students the ways events, innovations, and people have created the complex and wonderful world we live in.
I earned my bachelor degree in 2008 from Southern Utah University, majoring in History with a minor in art, and have always had a lifelong passion to study history. I’ve also played volleyball my whole life and had the opportunity to play in college at Dixie State for 2 years and still love playing whenever I can. I have been married for 15 years and have 2 very fun and active kids. I also enjoy traveling the country and world with my husband and family, boating, swimming, reading, and spending time outdoors.
Some of my other favorite things are: I Love Lucy, Back to the Future, nachos (mmmm nachos...), going to the movies, classic 70s rock music, museums and all the Italian food I can get.
