  • Welcome to the Cougars Reading Den!


    I'm Kristin Haring, the 8th-grade reading teacher.  I love teaching at the Kutztown Middle School!  I am a proud Cougar graduating from Kutztown Area School District and have been teaching in the middle school for 18 years. For seven years I was the 8th-grade Learning Support teacher.  After receiving my Master's Degree in Education with a certification as a Reading Specialist, I became the 8th-grade reading teacher.  Each day I am excited to share with my students something that I have read whether it is a book, newspaper article, a magazine blurb from Flipboard or Newsela, or an Education blog. I'm fervent about sharing my passion for reading with my students and colleagues.

    Besides teaching, my husband and I are proud parents of our son, Logan and our daughter, Madison.  We are busy bustling from school, sporting functions, and scouting activities.  In our spare time we love bike riding, hiking/walking, and fishing and helping build a better community.  You can always find me reading!
