Hello! My name is Kristen Schou, and this is my first year teaching 1st grade at St. Mel School. I graduated from Sacramento State with my bachelor’s in psychology and my teaching credential. As I was going through my RCIA program to become a Catholic this past year, I felt like God was calling me to work at a Catholic School. I am very happy I listened to his call and cannot wait for what this next year brings! My husband and I got married at St. Mel Church in 2019 and we just bought our first house this past year. When I am not working, I love spending my time reading, crocheting, or working on various DIY projects.
