It is a pleasure for me to introduce myself to the students and parents of Lincoln Academy. My name is Kristi Ungerman, and I am the mother of four wonderful children. I received my bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University in English Teaching with a minor in Political Science. I am also highly qualified to teach Middle Grades Math and Economics. Life for me has been lived all over the United States, but the last 20 years have been in the mountains of Arizona. While I managed a very busy optometric practice, I served 8 years on the local school board and then 5 years as the school district hearing officer. I returned to the classroom as an affiliate teacher through Eastern Arizona College teaching in our local district as an intervention specialist and academic counselor. I have choreographed musicals; taught voice lessons; coached swim team, t-ball and cheer; run Link Crew and taught and coached Academic Decathlon. My passions are humanities, music, nature and helping kids find their own voice in the world. I am excited to join the Lincoln family and look forward to getting to know all of you!
