Mrs. Kristen Pecar
This year marks my 7th year working for Avon Community Schools. I started teaching 1st Grade in February of 2018. Previously I taught pre-k in the Seedlings program offered in ACSC. Teaching is my second career, and also my passion. I originally graduated from Purdue University in 2001 with a Bachelors in Business and Organizational Leadership and Supervision. After working several years in the insurance industry I decided to go back to school at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College to become licensed in Elementary Education. I absolutely love my job and feel blessed to get to work with your children every day!
I have one son, Drew, who is currently a 7th grader at Plainfield Middle School. I am engaged to be married in the summer of 2019 where I will gain 2 more amazing boys into my family, Corran who is currently a 5th grader and Cael who is a 3rd grader. Between my fiance, Nic, and I our 3 boys keep us very busy. The boys are all 2 years apart and all 3 play baseball, basketball and lacrosse. My favorite hobbies top the list with watching our boys play the sports they love. When I have any free time between games and practices I also love to read, cook or take walks with our furry family member, Tiller.
I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year! I cannot wait to watch them learn and grow!
