Kristin Allred has been teaching young people in elementary school for 18 years and is one of the most dedicated and creative teachers that has ever been in the Salt Lake City school district. She strives for excellence in every facet of her planning and teaching and is extremely attuned to the needs of the slower less brilliant students who may need an extra boost and encourage meant. Just one example i know of, she invited a very skilled local artist into her class to help her students understand the basics of art. This teacher needs to be recognized!
