Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor's degree - Liberal Studies & Psychology Teaching certification - k-8
My name is Kristin Confalone. I am a first grade teacher at Paramount Elementary. I earned a Bachelors Degree in Liberal Studies and Psychology from Cal State Long Beach in 1990. I then moved to Boise and received my teaching certification from Boise State University. I have had an opportunity to teach prek, kindergarten, title I and first grade. I have been teaching first grade here at Paramount since the school opened in 2007. I still enjoy coming to school each day to see the beautiful smiling faces. I truly believe I have the best job in the entire world!
I was born in Trenton, New Jersey, but grew up in Southern California. My family moved to Boise in 1976 where I stayed until I was ready for college. I returned to California to attend Cal State University, Long Beach. After college I married my husband, Steve and we returned to Boise. We have been married for 35 years and have 2 beautiful children - Joe and Sophie. They are both grown and off on there own. My husband and I are now "empty nesters". This has taken a lot of getting used to! Thank goodness for my "other children"...the sweet ones I see every morning at school!
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, playing games and BBQing. I enjoy hiking and fishing, as well as reading and relaxing by the pool on the warm summer days!
I am very excited to be your child's teacher. Please feel free to contact me anytime!
