Meet Krysten

Krysten H.

After working in a daycare, I realized that working with children was my calling.

I didn’t really know what I wanted to study when I started my college education at Calhoun Community College, so I concentrated on taking classes to fulfill my general studies requirements. When I was presented with a job opportunity to work at a daycare center, I instantly fell in love with the atmosphere and the children and realized that this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

After completing three years at Calhoun, I transferred to Athens State. Calhoun had nothing but great things to say about the education program here, and after doing some research of my own, I saw that this was the best choice for me.

One day, I want to have my own classroom and teach, but my ultimate dream is to have a daycare of my own that caters to parents that work abnormal schedules.

Krysten currently works in the Academic Affairs Office at Athens State and has recently made the President’s List and Provost’s List for her outstanding academic work.
