Krista Daugherty was born in Cordova, Alaska where she lived until she was 11 years old. She always loved the outdoors and exploring. The Exxon Valdez oil spill of 1989 affected the businesses in Cordova very much. So much so actually that the family-owned business her father managed went under, and they decided to move to the small town of Parachute, Colorado.
Krista began to experience a different culture and explore new things. She came to realize that children were her passion, and she knew that she wanted a career that fostered that.
Krista attended college in Grand Junction, Colorado where she obtained her B.A. in elementary education. She taught at the public elementary school in Parachute for 9 years until she, her husband and their two children decided to change their lives drastically and move to Hawaii.
Krista had been teaching a 2nd/3rd grade multiage class in Colorado and, when she saw the posting for a 2nd/3rd grade multiage class at Waimea Country School, she knew it was destiny. She is very happy to be teaching in such a wonderful school and location.
