Hola! I am Kristina Strauss, your child's Spanish teacher! I am originally from the city of Tonawanda, and I live in Wheatfield (yes I know, it's a long drive!). I graduated from Niagara University with my Bachelor's Degree, as well as my Master's Degree. My first full-time teaching job in Hamburg - this is my 12th year here! I teach both 7th and 8th grade Spanish. In addition to working at Hamburg, I am also the President of a professional organization for Foreign Language teachers, called WNYFLEC.
I am married (Mr. Strauss - he is a teacher, too! At Hoover MS in Kenmore), and we have a 5 year old at home (Eric) and our daughter (Morgan) is 3 and 1/2! My favorite color is red and my favorite food is popcorn. I also love Dove dark chocolate (hint hint).
In my spare time, I like to watch TV, and I LOVE traveling. Within the United States, I have been to Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Illinois, Missouri, Minnesota, Kansas, Arizona, Texas, Nevada, California, and Hawaii! Outside of the United States, I have been to Canada, Mexico, Honduras, Belize, Costa Rica, Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, and England.
