    Welcome! My name is Kristina Polillo and I am greatly blessed to be a teacher at Jacobson, a wife, and mother to 2 amazing children, William and Sophia.

    My Education and Professional Background

    I previously taught 3rd grade for 10 years,  2nd grade for 11, and now I am excited to continue my journey in first grade for the 2nd year. I received a Bachelor's in Elementary Education from the University of Portland in May 2001. I also earned my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from NAU in the Spring of 2007.

    My Educational Philosophy

    Through the positive impact and amazing spirit of my own teachers I developed a tremendous passion for teaching as a child and knew I could help other children love learning as well. Organization, high behavioral and academic expectations, and a caring environment are important components to the classroom. I believe teachers and parents make an incredible team in a child's educational success. Children teach us more than we know and with that it gives us an opportunity to learn how to meet their unique needs.
