English Teacher at Boone High School in Orlando, FL
Krista Lang is a high school English II teacher in Orlando, FL, where she strives to find ways for her students to create real life connections to the classroom, to build meaningful relationships, and to challenge themselves by trying something they've never tried before. Before transitioning to the high school, she spent eleven years teaching seventh grade Language Arts, sponsoring the yearbook, and volunteering as a Girls on the Run coach. Plus, she has had the pleasure of coaching girls basketball, boys soccer, and girls track and field. For as important as it is to see students grow in the classroom, it is just as important to see students shine in something they love, something they hand select and mentally dedicate their efforts to that can be as challenging or as easy as they make it. In her spare time, she spends time hiking with her two dogs, attending a local music concert, or reading a good book. Krista is eager to meet the campers at Capitol Debate to help create the best summer experience, full of new friendships, new challenges, new knowledge, and new memories.
