Mrs. Kristen Herrett
Welcome to 6th Grade Science!
My name is Kristen Herrett and I love teaching science as it combines skills you will use every day in all of your classes, reading, writing, math, knowing past examples (history), and critical thinking (all subject areas!).
This is my seventh year teaching and all my years have been here at DMS. My children attend the Dixon schools and my husband teaches at Dixon High School, so we are a Bull Dog family!
I began my career here at Dixon as an exceptional children teacher where I taught all grade levels and subject areas at some point. Last year I decided I was ready for a change and began my next teaching adventure teaching my favorite subject, science.
If you need to contact me, email is the best way firstname.lastname@example.org or via the Remind app.
At the end of the day, when you leave my classroom, I want you to feel like you did the best job you were able to that day. And my hope for all my students is that they believe in their ability to learn and know that doing right is always more important than being right.
