Mrs. Kristal Arevalo
I am originally from Bowling Green, KY. I moved to Henderson, TN to pursue my education at Freed-Hardeman University, where I met my husband. We decided to relocate to Manassas to be closer to my husband's family and we have loved every minute! I then earned my Bachelors Degree from Liberty University in Education and Family Consumer Science. I have a dog named Luna and a cat named Comet who I love spending my time with outside of the classroom.
Over my 6 years working in the education field, I have worked with students aged 4 up to 5th grade. One reason that I love teaching 1st grade is their eagerness to learn.This is my second year working with the amazing 1st grade STAR students at Jennie Dean Elementary. In my classroom you will likely see lots of movement and hands-on activities to make learning fun for all learners.
My goal for this school year is to inspire my students to believe in themselves, and to always give their best effort. I am so excited to see how much academic and personal growth our students will have throughout this school year! I am proud to be a Jennie Dean Dolphin.
