Dr. Krista Ottino

Welcome to Team Ottino 

Welcome to Fifth Grade and Team Ottino! I have had the privilege of teaching for St. Paul Public Schools for 32 years! I have taught 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th. I have also served as a coach in the areas of literacy, math, and behavior. I have a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education, a Masters degree in Instructional Systems and Technology, and a Doctorate degree in Educational Policy and Administration.

In addition to teaching 5th grade, I also teach two graduate level courses for Hamine University's Urban Education certificate program: Culturally Relevant Pedagogy and Managing the Urban Classroom.

I live in Hudson, WI with my husband and three dogs: Bella, Sadie and Rhett. Sadie and Bella are internationally certified as Pet Therapy dogs and visit a number of hospitals and nursing homes in our community with my husband, Rick. I enjoy gardening, reading, travelling and spending time with family and friends. I am also taking Spanish 201 this year in an effort to improve my Spanish language skills.

Please reach out with any questions, concerns or even to just touch base! Parents and family are a vital part of TEAM OTTINO!
