Degrees and Certifications:
Hello and welcome to fourth grade!
My name is Kristina Booms and I am so happy to be teaching at Murphy Elementary.
I am a DePaul University and Michigan State University Alumni. My certification qualifies me to teach Kindergarten through 8thth grade, all subjects and 6th thru 8th grade Social Studies. I received my Master's Degree at DePaul University, in Elementary Education. Prior to attending DePaul University, I received my Bachelor's Degree at Michigan State University in Hospitality Business. After pursuing a career in hospitality, my heart desired to make a difference in the world by working with children. I could not have been happier with my choice to change my career to education. I was born and raised in Haslett. I graduated from Haslett High School and even went to preschool here!
When I am not busy in the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and my cat Lucy. I have two sisters, Michelle and Jessica, and one brother, TJ. You may see TJ driving around town in a firetruck or ambulance! He is a paramedic and fireman for Meridian Township. I also have ten nieces and nephews who keep me busy and on my toes. Four of them are Haslett Vikings as well. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, hiking, traveling, kayaking, and gardening.
This is my seventh year here at Murphy Elementary and I would not want to be anywhere else! I am very excited to have the opportunity to build relationships with you and your students throughout the school year. My number one goal is to provide a positive and meaningful learning experience for your child. If, at anytime, you have questions or concerns, please feel free to email or call me at school.
Here's to a great year together!
