Alissa Krum

Alissa Krum has been working at The Homestead School since 2016. Alissa graduated from Suny New Paltz with a degree in Arts Education. Prior to working at The Homestead School,  she worked as a high school art teacher. She enjoyed teaching a variety of art forms, from photography to crafts such as batiking. During this time, she also worked with students involved in the Olympics of the Visual Arts, a program where students have to problem solve utilize historical references, brainstorming, problem-solving, and creative solutions. Alissa and her husband are parents to three homestead students. During these years, she has worked in a number of capacities with the school, assisting in the art room, Early Childhood, and Lower Elementary.

In her free time, she enjoys teaching her children about history and exploring the area they live in. Alissa enjoys hiking, biking, fishing, and beekeeping — her favorite hobby.

“Why I love being an educator is simple. We, as teachers, build relationships with our students. We learn what their dreams are, and we can support them in reaching their goals and fulfilling their potential. We help them become writers, critical thinkers, creative problem-solvers, and masterful readers. Teaching has given me the opportunity to exercise my creativity as well. In my journey, my fellow educators, my students, and their stories inspire me.”
