Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Kirven

I am very excited to support students in learning more about math, science, and social studies 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’s of Arts in Early Childhood and a Master’s of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Ohio Dominican University.

Experience: This will be year 16 in education. I spent 9 years teaching 2nd grade, 5 years as an instructional coach for mathematics, and last year I taught 3rd grade. I have also held leadership positions, served on curriculum committees, and mentored new teachers.

Outside of the classroom: I have been married for 31 years to my wonderful husband Charles. We have 3 adult children, all who attended New Albany schools from elementary through high school graduation. We also have two adorable grandsons.
