Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Kristen Navar and I have had the pleasure of teaching at Leyden High Schools since 1999. During this time, I have taught at both campuses but most of my time has been spent teaching at West. I have taught numerous subjects within the Special Education department, but I currently teach Reading, Social Communications, and World Readiness. I enjoy helping students find passion in learning and hope to inspire them to learn something new and thought provoking every day.
I have a bachelor's degree from Illinois State University in Education and a Master's of Teaching from Aurora University. In addition, I have been an adjunct professor with Benedictine University teaching other educators which allowed me the opportunity to share all the fabulous things we are doing here at Leyden!
I look forward to spending time with your son and daughter in the classroom. If I can ever be of assistance please feel free to email or call me.
