Ms. Kristina Shoger

Hi! My name is Ms. Shoger, and I am your Third grade ELA and Social Studies teacher. This is my ninth year at Gavilan Peak, and my sixeenth year of teaching third grade. I have also taught three years of fourth grade. This is my nineteenth year of teaching! 

I was born and raised in Arizona, and have degress from Arizona State University and Northern Arizona University (M.Ed.).  My son, Alex, is also a graduate of Northern Arizona University, majoring in Management and Finance. He is a Program Finance Analyst for an aerospace and defense company.   Other members of our family include our dog “Abby” and turtle “Tiny Tim”.

One of my favorite subjects to teach is Reading. I love that in third grade we shift from “Learning to Read” to “Reading to Learn”. Third graders also get to study Arizona History.  State 48 is unique and we will enjoy learning new things, about our state, together.  It is going to be an exciting year. I look forward to getting to know each one of you!
