Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Kirven

I am very excited about teaching 3rd grade this school year! There is plenty to discover and investigate and I am eager to meet the learners who will share my classroom.

Education: I have a Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood and a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Ohio Dominican University.

Experience: This will be my 15th year in education.  During my first nine years in education, I taught 2nd grade, held leadership positions, served on curriculum committees, and mentored new teachers. For the last five years, I was an instructional coach for mathematics. 

Outside of the classroom: I have been married for 30 years to my wonderful husband, Charles. We have three adult children, all of who attended New Albany schools from elementary through high school graduation. We also have two adorable grandsons.
