Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Kristen Tibbles
My name is Kristen Tibbles, and I am originally from Pennsylvania. I graduated from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2006 with a BS in Secondary English Education. I continued my graduate studies at IUP from 2007-2010. In Pennsylvania, I taught primarily 9th and 10th grade English classes along with several elective courses including Creative Writing and Poetry Analysis and Exploration from 2007-2018. We moved to Auburn in December of 2019, and then I taught virtually for my former district during the Covid school closures of the 2020-2021 school year. During that time, I was responsible for 7th and 8th grade Reading and English classes and English classes for grades 9-12. Most recently, I served as a substitute teacher in Auburn City and Opelika schools, completing a long-term substituting position at the Auburn Junior High from Sept. 2021-December 2021.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time exploring our new state, hiking, swimming, and gardening with my family, which includes my husband, my two children, and our dogs Molly and Roxy.
I am thrilled to be back in a classroom of my own.
