My name is Kristin Pontarelli and I am a Spanish teacher at East Greenwich High School in East Greenwich, RI. I currently teach Spanish 1, 2, 4 and 5. I received my undergraduate degree in Spanish from the University of Delaware. I also received my Masters degree from the University of Delaware in Spanish Language and Literatures (concentration in Peninsular Literature). While doing my graduate work, I was fortunate enough to be a visiting scholar and I taught English for Specific Purposes at la Universidad de Granada, in Granada, Spain.
I first became interested in flipping my classes when I saw a Sophia webinar hosted by Crystal Kirch. I started slowly and in one month was fast and furiously making tutorials and not looking back!
I love to incorporate my tutorials, Google Forms, Google Voice and other authentic language resources in my daily routine. I started a blog at kpontarelli.blogspot.com, in which I detail my journey through my flipping experience.
I have worked hard to flip my classes, but I can't go back! I see such benefits from flipping my classes and now wouldn't do it any other way!
I hope you find my tutorials useful!
I graduated from Colorado State University with a B.S in Chemistry and Mathematics along with an education certification. My career began in Utah teaching junior high math and high school chemistry. I spent 22 years in the classroom as a science teacher in the Rosemount, Apple Valley, Eagan School District. I have taught physics, AP, honors, general and concept level Chemistry. Currently, I am a Professional Development Specialist working in the School of Education at Capella University. During the summer, I facilitate week long workshops for new and experienced chemistry teachers at Hamline University with Prof. Matt Morgan. As a team, we cover content as well as current best practices in the science classroom including inquiry and digital resources. I am also employed by the College Board as an AP Chemistry Consultant where I facilitate day-long to week-long workshops for classroom teachers. I believe one of the best ways to improve my professional practice is to network with teachers from all over the country and I enjoy the opportunities this provides.
