About Kristin

I'm Kristin Sonquist and have been teaching in Minneapolis since 1989.  Wow!  That's a long time!  I started at Ramsey as a Spanish immersion kindergarten teacher. Next, I  spent 12 wonderful years teaching grades K-5 at Downtown Open school.  In 2003 I came to Barton to teach first and second grade -- what a lucky day for me! I have five kids of my own: four grown up boys and my daughter Amanda Jane, a Barton grad who is at South Open now.  We live in Crystal with my husband, AJ, our dogs, Penny and Margaret, between two and four cats, and some chickens.  Long story.  We'll get to know each other well during our time together. To get started, take a tour through our website (be sure to check out the Barton Dictionary).  Watch this space for news and information about what's going on in the classroom.
