Ms. ChrisAnn Makurat

Student-Centered Coach

Hello! My name is Chrissy Makurat, and I am a student-centered coach for Glenbrook and Fairview Elementary Schools. I have been a classroom teacher since 1997 and I am excited to begin this new journey as an instructional coach. I am a lifelong learner, so I am passionate about seeking out and implementing new programs and successful teaching practices.

I am a die-hard Packer fan! Traveling, hiking, biking, kayaking, taking walks, and reading are other activities I enjoy. I have 2 children. My son, Cameron attends UW-Green Bay, and my daughter, MacKenzie goes to Columbia College in Chicago.
