422History started in a high school history classroom with a single window view. The view served as the inspiration for the store name and things grew from there. We affectionately refer to it as “Four Twenty-Two History.”
Kristen started 422History in the fall of 2016 with the goal of helping other high school history teachers. In her earliest years of teaching, Kristen had a really difficult time locating an abundance of ideas that would be useful in her four unique prep classes, so she spent a lot of time researching for, then creating resources. After helping a few friends with design projects and classroom ideas, she realized that other teachers might benefit from the time and effort spent. So began 422History.
Kristen has been teaching for six years at a private Christian school in Pennsylvania. The first three years were spent as an administrative assistant and part-time teacher, while /somewhat/ patiently waiting for a full-time teaching position. The middle school and lower high school history teacher position opened in the fall of 2014 and Kristen has been loving it ever since! She currently teaches American history, world history (on two age levels!), and geography.
In her spare time, Kristen enjoys reading, walking her dog, volunteering in her church youth group, and spending lots of time with her husband. She is slowly learning about graphic design, web design, and marketing. Kristen’s husband of six years is her patient teacher and best friend. He regularly provides technical support and encouragement.
