Mrs. Kristina Stanley

Hello and welcome!

 My name is Kristi Stanley and I am one of the STLR teachers at Hermansen (Structured Teaching Learning Resource room) currently teaching K-2nd grade. This year marks the my 7th year teaching in the STLR program. I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education at Bradley Univeristy.  I continued my education shortly after beginning my career and earned my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from National-Louis University and currently hold my Learning Behavior Specialist 1 endorsement. I reside in Plainfield with my husband Dan, my 5 and 2 year old sons Emmett, and Elliot.  We also have a Boxer pup, Layla.  I have worn several hats since earning my degree in 2007 from teaching 2nd grade, being a paraprofessional and teaching at a therapeutic day school before joining the Valley View School District in 2014.  

My two passions are my family and teaching.  I am committed to you and your child and working together as an effective team to provide the best learning environment for your child as possible!  I am confident this will be a great year and I am very much looking forward in getting to know your child and see where this year takes us! 

 If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate!  Email is the best and most efficient way to contact me at, or call the school at 815.886.7581.
