My name is Kristen Aimi (Calle) and this is my fourth year teaching at Hillside Elementary. Prior to coming to Hastings I taught English as a New Language in the New York City Public Schools. I graduated from New York University and then went on to get my Master's degree at Pace University in Elementary Education. In addition to being certified in Elementary Education and ENL, I hold certification in Special Education and Literacy. I love the community and friendly environment at Hillside and I am thrilled to be teaching here.
I enjoy taking yoga, hiking, biking and running.....basically anything outdoors. My passion for running has enabled me to coach sports at Hastings. I coach X-Country, Winter Track and Spring Track. I look forward to another successful year teaching and coaching at Hastings!
