My name is Kristin Meister and this is my 16th year teaching Health and Physical Education. I spent 2 years of my career at Phillipsburg High School where I coached soccer, softball, and the school's step dance team. After that, I found an opportunity in Hackettstown and the rest is history! While in the district, I spent 4 years coaching the Varsity softball team and in 2014, I became part of the Middle School family.
I played college softball at TCNJ, where I was a 4-year starter in multiple positions, including third base, outfield and (my personal favorite) catcher.
In my spare time, I enjoy lifting weights, coaching, hiking and rock climbing, and playing softball on 2 different teams. I've coached the Jersey Inferno softball team for 17 years where I've had the privilege of working with one high school All-American, 2 Collegiate All-Americans, and 2 NCAA National Champions at Alabama and Florida State. As an adult, I continue to play both slowpitch and modified fastpitch softball. I love dancing, being outdoors and rock climbing indoors. Obviously, like most of the students, I have a difficult time sitting still!
My passion is teaching kids life lessons through physical activity and sports. I believe that there is something for everyone in the world of lifetime wellness and fitness and I make it my top priority to help each student find something under the umbrella of lifetime physical activity that they can enjoy. I believe in sharing my enthusiasm for physical activity with students in a contagious way that draws them in and hooks them for the rest of their lives.
