Early Childhood Classroom Teacher

Mrs. Kristine Kellerhals

My name is Kris Kellerhals. I grew up in Hoopeston. I graduated from Hoopeston Area High School in 1996. I then graduated from Eastern Illinois University in 2000 with a degree in Special Education, and again in 2012 with a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership. I have been teaching students with special needs ever since 2000. I have taught students of all abilities ranging from Early Childhood Special Education to 6th grade levels.

I greatly enjoy being back in Hoopeston. I live here with my husband Scott and our four legged daughter, Patches Louise. I love being around my friends and family. I spend my free time at home with Scott and Patches or with my Mom and Dad. I enjoy reading books and watching crime shows on TV. I love to do yoga. I really love to do any type of crafty thing that lets me be creative, such as sewing, painting, baking, cooking, etc. I am very excited to be teaching Early Childhood Special Education. I student taught in ECSE at Hoopeston and feel this is where I am supposed to be.
