She currently teaches art classes such as intro to 2D art, drawing, painting, and fiber arts. However, her flexibility and creative mind go far beyond the classes she teaches. Not only is she a delight to be around and encourages students to try their best in any situation, but she also is the head of clubs like Art Club and Webmasters Club, in which students come together to learn website coding and everything in between when it comes to computers.

Working to help break that feeling and the stigma attached to many people with disabilities, Krissy Vanderwoude volunteers for the Reflectors program at Faith Church in Dyer.
