My name is Kristen Chan.  I have been a Special Education teacher for 25 years and a teacher here in Hillside for the past 19 years. I am a graduate of Kean University with a degree in Special Education as well as an Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education from Union County College.  This year I will changing positions and working as the General education teacher in the inclusion setting and I am looking forward to this exciting new change. 



I have worked in several different capacities over the last few years here in Hillside.  I have been teaching in an inclusion classroom for my last 9 years here in Hillside and love to be apart of every students learning.  This is my fourth year here at Hurden-Looker.  I just recently made this exciting move up to Hurden-Looker after many years in APM/ECC working with the preschool and Kindergarten classes.  


I am a mother of two girls and am active quilter and crafter.  I love to read and spend time with my husband, two girls and our two dogs.  


I am looking forward to another interesting and exciting new year here at Hurden-Looker Elementary School.
