Ms. Kristel Wallace

This will be my 2nd year at Sunset Park and I could not be more excited to be a part of this team. I came to Sunset Park from CMS and the move to Sunset Park was an amazing move. I am a second career teacher and truly living out my passion teaching. I earned a Bacholer's degree in Finance from East Carolina University before obtaining my Elementary Education/Early Childhood Degree at Anderson University. Since earning my degree I have continued to take classes and have just completed my Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction from Liberty University, which is also where I am I am working on my Doctorate as time allows. I truly believe to be an effective educator that I need to continue to embrace learning myself.

I am originally from Southport, North Carolina and moved to Rock Hill about 6 years ago. I have 3 beautiful children ages 13, 12 and 9. Oh, one can not forget the other child in our home, Cooper.  Cooper is our Golden Retriever who brings our family so much joy. Together we enjoy going to the beach, being outside and riding roller coasters. On Saturdays and Sundays you will find me cheering on the Tarheels and Seattle Seahawks!!  I am an avid sports fan!

As a teacher, I am very passionate that EVERY child can learn if given the right tools, atmosphere and teacher.  I firmly believe in building relationships and community in my classroom so that every child feels welcomes and valued.  In my classroom we are on a journey from ordinary to EXTRAordinary.
