Bio: In 7th grade, Kristin saw first-hand how a struggling student turned things around because one teacher believed in him. And for the last twelve years, she brings that power of positivity into her classroom, believing in her students as a Kindergarten teacher. This is her dream job! She loves school and loves the first day when she gets to meet every child that walks through her door. Kristin has a Master’s degree in Reading and Writing, and a Master’s degree in Differentiated Instruction. Wilmot is her “school family,” her daughters went here, and she considers it her second home. Kristin has two daughters and a step son along with many four legged friends; three big and crazy dogs, three furry cats, two horses and a pony. In fact, Kristin’s been known to bring her pony to school, so he too can get some love from the students at Wilmot Elementary.

Bio: Kris Centeno loves being part of the family atmosphere at Wilmot Elementary, where the staff treats all students like their own. Which is why her favorite memory is when she ran into a former parent who got teary eyed while thanking Kris for supporting her son. Starting off in special education, Kris is able to utilize a variety of teaching techniques in her kindergarten classroom. She loves working with this age group, the process of trying, trying again, learning and mastering new skills is fulfilling. Plus, working with children who are open, playful, and honest supports her in quest to stay young! Kris has been the recipient of several Jeffco Value Awards including Exemplary Performance 2014, 2019 & Integrity Award: 2017. Originally from Florida, Kris lives in Conifer with her husband and two daughters.
