My name is Kristen Rosenthal and 2017-2018 marks my 13th year in the Colonial School District! I currently teach art at Harry O. Eisenberg Elementary School. 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 Elementary Art Educators on the Executive Board for the Delaware Art Education Association! To learn more about DAEA go to http://1stdaea.com/
I live in Newark with my husband 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 Adirondak Park, Giant Mountain!!!
