Mrs. Kristine teaches at both Little Peaches and Peachtree. You will see her as a sub and overall teacher supporter at Peachtree. Kristine is able to relieve teachers so that they can attend trainings, personal appointments or their own children’s events! Because Kristine spends quite a bit of time at the school, she will know and be familiar with each Childs care, so that stepping in when a teacher is absent will be seamless!
