• Welcome to Mrs. Damon's 5th grade class at school 5!



    As a teacher at school #5, I pledge to make learning fun!  It is my role to educate students behaviorally, socially and academically. 

    Through providing a positive, structured and safe learning environment; each student can acheive success!


    About Me:

    My name is Kristina Damon and I am 35 years old.  I have been working for the Dunkirk school district since October 2015.  I currently live in Dunkirk with my husband and 2 children; Alivia and Tanner.  They attend school 7.  I also have a 1 year old dog, named Luna.  I enjoy reading and doing cross word puzzles or just interacting with the kids and following their sports schedules.  I am a Buffalo Bills fan and love to listen to any kind of music or show!


    Teaching Background:

    I started my career teaching for COI Head Start and was there for 10 years doing UPK preschool.  In 2015, I got hired at Dunkirk in my specialty area; reading teacher.  I then, moved onto doing 5th grade for 1/2 a year before moving over to school #5 in 2016.  I taught 2nd grade and 3rd grade, before settling on 5th grade.  I am an active member of our school's reading incentive committee and help to plan evening events.
