Teacher Bio

About Mrs. Kris Gustafson:

I attended high school in Illinois, and it was during this time that I attended a Christian camp and heard the salvation message.  It was at the age of 15 that I acknowledged I was a sinner and believed in Jesus’ death and resurrection and asked Him to be Lord of my life.

I am married to a wonderful man and we have been blessed with three children.  Annie is attending Faith Baptist Bible College and Jacob and Greta are at Fourth Baptist Christian School.  I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, creating healthy meals for my family, and travelling.

From a young age, I knew that I wanted to be a teacher.  Following high school, I attended Bethel University where I earned my degree in elementary education.  I taught for three years full-time in the public schools, and then God lead me to home school our children for 15 years.  During that time, I had many opportunities to work with children which included teaching at and co-leading a home school co-op, tutoring, substitute teaching, proctoring standardized testing, and working with children who have special needs.
