Kiansten, Christy

  • Dear Students and Families,

    I am excited to be supporting and teaching English Language Learners at NWMS and OHI in Oak Harbor.  My job is to help students acquire and apply English language skills academically and socially. I have worked with English Language Learners of all ages from grade school to university.  I enjoy languages and travel and have either studied or worked in France, Japan, Finland and Italy. My linguistic and international experiences gave me the desire to help students culturally adapt and learn language as they move to a new country.

    In class we focus on perfecting English skills in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Also, I do my best to support students with mainstream classwork and communication with teachers.

    Please contact me with any questions at

    All the best,

    Ms. Kiansten
