M.Ed., Indiana Wesleyan University
B.S., Ball State University


Kristen Slone earned her undergraduate degree in Secondary English Education at Ball State University and her graduate degree in Curriculum and Instruction at Indiana Wesleyan University. She taught all levels of public high school English/Language Arts for twelve years before becoming a part-time composition instructor for both Purdue Polytechnic and Anderson University.

Some of the most memorable experiences she had as a high school English teacher involved helping students realize their potential as readers and writers, and facilitating that growth throughout the school year. She also enjoyed her time as the school's academic team coach and as a team teacher for the freshman academy.

Kristen and her husband have three daughters, and in 2015 prayerfully decided to home school when their oldest turned five. This calling has been the best decision and biggest blessing for their family. In her spare time, she and her husband stay busy renovating their late-1800s farmhouse, gardening, preserving food, and serving in their church.
