Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Kristen Zeedyk, and I am looking forward to my second year as a fourth grade teacher here at Perkins Elementary!
I grew up in Naples, Florida and later attended the University of Florida, where I earned a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Elementary Education. After graduating, I stayed in Gainesville and taught fifth grade for five years. In 2018, I relocated to Saint Petersburg and taught third grade at Fairmount Park Elementary before joining the Perkins Family.
My favorite subjects are language arts and history, and I love to travel. In my spare time, I enjoy relaxing and reading on the beach and hanging out with my family, friends, and adorable dog, Burke.
