Kristie Van Kannel

I am very excited to be starting my 23rd year of teaching. I previously taught 3rd grade for 14 years, 4th grade for 7 years and 6th grade for 1 year. I graduated from Pickerington High School in 1991. I attended Ohio University and received my Education Degree. I started teaching in 1995. I then went to Ashland University where I received my Master's Degree.

I still live in Pickerington with my husband Greg, our son Peyton, and our daughter Lexi, who is a freshman at Capital University. When I am not in school I spend time watching my kids play soccer and hanging out with my family.

If you need to reach me, please feel free to email me at You can also call the school or write a note in your child’s planner. I am looking forward to a great year. ☺
