DPEA Physics Teacher
Introducing DPEA physics teacher, Mrs. Kristen Ritter
My name is Kristen Ritter and I would like to introduce myself as a physics teacher of the Dos Pueblos Engineering Academy. I grew up in northern California but the majority of my extended family lives here. These family ties brought me to UCSB for my Bachelors Degree, teaching credential, and Masters in Education. My husband and I were lucky enough to get jobs in beautiful Santa Barbara after college, and for the last four years I have taught several different science courses at Dos Pueblos, including Physics. I am very excited to be a part of the DPEA team during this time of innovative expansion to the program. One of my favorite things about teaching is getting to know the students as individuals. I am pleased that this program capitalizes on this by providing the opportunity to foster meaningful growth over several years. I greatly look forward to this year, which will mark the beginning of an exciting, fulfilling, and most importantly, educational journey for the students!
