Welcome to First Grade!
Hello! My name is Kristi LaPrest and this is my 17th year teaching in the School District of Waukesha. I have taught Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade. Before coming to Banting, I taught at White Rock and Hawthorne. It is my sixth year teaching at Banting.
I have my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Mount Mary College and my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Wisconsin Whitewater.
Some of my hobbies are cooking, crafts, reading and shopping. I also love water parks! My husband and I have 2 wonderful children who keep me very busy when I'm not at school. My daughter Aubrey is 11 and my son Miles is 7. I have a Scottish Terrier named Zoey who is my best buddy!
I am so excited to be teaching first grade this year!
My door is always open and I'm always welcome to parent volunteers! I can be reached at:
I love to read! Some of my favorite books include The Giving Tree, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane and The Polar Express.
