Mrs. Kristen Mokhlessin
Welcome to 1st Grade! I'm so excited to be your teacher!
A little bit about me... I grew up in Orange County and graduated from Loyola Marymount University in 2002 with my teaching degree. I started teaching in Anaheim and taught a range of grades, plus reading and math intervention. I taught there until I took a few years off to stay home with my boys.
Once my oldest started Kindergarten, I got involved at TLES. I started as a classroom volunteer, then was everything from PTA President, a math and reading intervention teacher, a substitute, and then full time in the classroom in 2021.
I have two boys...Tucker is a student here at TLES and Jackson is at Gardner Middle School. I also have two girls...but they're cats, Ms. Pickles and Luna! My husband, Nick, owns a commercial landscape company. My family loves traveling, the outdoors, and getting pizza and watching movies together. I also love to read, watch British TV, and anything nerdy like Harry Potter and Marvel.
As I usually have students in my room, the BEST way to get in contact with me is either email or a Remind message. You can also chat with me at the gate after school when I've dismissed the students. If you'd like to talk but can't make it after school, send me a message and we'll set up a zoom meeting!
