Photo - Kris GoldadeHello! My name is Kris Goldade and I am the Gifted and Talented teacher at Garlough Environmental Magnet School. I have had the pleasure of being at Garlough since 2015. 

Prior to teaching at Garlough, I taught third grade at Moreland Elementary for ten years. In addition, I had the opportunity to teach future educators at Concordia University in St. Paul for three years.

I hold a bachelor's degree in elementary education from The University of Wisconsin-River Falls and a Master of Educational Leadership degree from the University of Minnesota.

My husband and I are both educators. We have two very active sons! In my free time, I can be found at any one of my boys many sporting events, walking our dog or working in my yard!
