Student Services and Curriculum Assistant Principal

My Bio

Hello!  My name is Kristen Stanfel.  I am an Arizona native. This school year will be my fifth year here at San Tan and I am extremely excited for this upcoming year!  I have been teaching for 12 years. I have taught all grades and all subject areas from 3rd grade thru 12th grade.  Being in education is my passion and I gain my energy by being in the school environment.  I love to be a part of San Tan’s family community and growth. I will be the Student Services and Curriculum and Instruction Assistant Principal this upcoming school year and I cannot wait for the success we are going to achieve together!!

Along with being an educator, I am also a mother of 5.  I have four boys, and one girl. My children are a wide range of ages to keep life busy!  They are 17, 17, 12, 7, and 6. We are always on the go and involved with sports. Never a dull moment!    My favorite sport is football and I am a true Cardinals fan!! I love Mexican food and all types of music. My family and I love going to the beach and anything outdoors such as fishing, camping, and enjoying the weather, when we can!

I am a firm believer in building relationships with students to help them see their own potentials and to gain success.  Being in education, I know that I can make a positive impact with students. There is nothing better or more rewarding than watching a student grow.
