Mrs. Schaffer

My name is Kris Schaffer, and I am thrilled to be a 2nd grade teacher at Eisenhower Elementary.  I am looking forward to meeting and getting to know each student and their family.  We will have a FUN year learning new things and making great friends. Every student has many unique talents and strengths to contribute to our class.  I can’t wait to see the smiling faces of my 2nd grade Super Heroes who are ready for a great adventure!

Before coming to Eisenhower, I was a 6th grade Math/Science teacher for 2 years and a 5th grade Math/Science teacher for 6.5 years at Boyce Middle School.  My family had a wonderful opportunity to relocate and live in Lexington, Kentucky for the past 2.5 years before returning to Pittsburgh.

I am extremely blessed to have a loving family.  I have a fantastic and supportive husband and two amazing children.  My daughter, Peyton, is heading to Marshall University with a golf scholarship, and my son, Triston, is a junior here at USC high school.  He loves playing lacrosse. 

When I am not in the classroom, I love spending time with my sweet puppy, Hazel.  I enjoy reading, exercising, watching movies and sports, and doing anything as long as I am with my family.

I am so lucky to spend my days doing what I love.  My goal is for each student to be excited for learning and have the desire to be their best every day.  I hope they find their inner Super Hero so that they will always do the right thing for themselves and others.
