My name is Kristen Rosenthal and 2019-2020 marks my 15th year in the Colonial School District! I currently teach art at Harry O. Eisenberg Elementary and John G. Leach Schools. I studied art and painting at the University of Delaware culminating in a degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting. Then I studied in the Masters program in Arts Administration at Drexel University and completed the Art Education program at Moore College of Art & Design.
I am delighted to represent Art Educators as the President for the Delaware Art Education Association! To learn more about DAEA go to DAEA.weebly.com
I live in Newark with my husband, our daughter Alexandra, and our dog, Faraday. I love to play and watch sports, especially baseball and football. My favorite baseball team is the Philadelphia Phillies. My favorite football team is the Green Bay Packers. My favorite activities are hiking, camping, lacrosse, skiing, and bowling. My favorite color is orange and food is chocolate chip cookies, cheese fries and M&Ms.
In May 2010, I completed my long-time goal of running a half-marathon (13.1 miles!). It felt great to reach my goal! In the summers, I love to go hiking and backpacking, sleeping in the wilderness is so much fun! In the picture above, I hiked to the top of one of the highest peaks in New York State Adirondack Park, Giant Mountain!!! Here are some more pictures of my adventures and my visits to museums.
