Kristen Geist

8th Grade Literacy


My name is Kristen Geist, and I teach 8th grade Literacy at Southview Middle School. In addition to teaching, I am the head coach for the 8th grade girls cross country team, along with the assistant coach for the 8th grade girls track team. 

Before I arrived at Ankeny I attended the University of Northern Iowa where I received my B.A. in Communication Studies. After working for a few years I went back to school for teaching at Drake University and earned my M.A.T. in Secondary Education Language Arts & Reading, 5-12. I recently obtained my Educational Specialist Degree in Content Literacy & Reading Specialist.  My previous teaching experience includes two years at Madrid Jr. High where I taught 7th & 8th grade Language Arts and Reading.  The last few years, I have been a Hawk! 

Currently I live in Ankeny and on the weekends you may catch me running around the town! I spend a lot time with my family, and I will be sharing stories about my adventures about my life as a mom.  

The best times to contact me are before or after school or between 9:30-10:30 am. Email is the best way to reach me. Please get a hold of me with any questions or concerns.  

I am very excited to be at Southview this year! I cannot wait to see how our young learners grow and exceed our expectations.

Mrs. Geist
