Kristi Knowles


My name is Kristi Knowles and this is my fourth year teaching fourth grade at Good Foundations Academy.  I love teaching and being a part of students' lives everyday. I love reading books and hope that I can instill that same joy into my classroom with my students. I started my teaching degree at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. I met my husband while attending UCF. He decided to enlist in the US Air Force and we married in June of 2006. His first duty station took us to Alamogordo, NM where I finished my degree at New Mexico State University in 2007. After living in New Mexico for five years my growing family relocated to Pensacola, Florida. I ran an in-home day care to take care of my three boys and a few other military families children while living there. After five years of living in Pensacola the Air Force moved my family to Hill AFB here in Utah. We have been here for 5 years. Two of my three children attend GFA.  I enjoy cooking southern comfort foods for my family and making sweet tea. During the summer, I like to travel. My favorite place to visit is Orlando, FL,  because all my family lives there. Of course, being from Orlando I am a big Disney fan. My first job as a teenager was working at Disney World in Orlando. My past students will tell you how much I enjoy singing random Disney songs and talking about fun Disney trivia.
