About Me


Hello, my name is Kristin Chisham and I am so excited to be teaching at South Haven. If you wish, you may read about my teaching experience in another part of the website. I'll share a little about me here. I look forward to getting to know the students, parents and community here at South Haven.


I am a passionate vintage lover as in clothes, hats, fascinators, costume dramas, murder mysteries etc. My favorite shows have things to do with costumes and history: Downton Abbey, Outlander, Poldark etc. 


I love to read mysteries and novels, sew (when I have time) work-out (weight-lifting and yoga are my favorite) and try different recipes! I love to bike-ride on flat bike trails and enjoy finding/exploring new places to hang out.


I am married to Dan Chisham (also a music educator) and we have two daughters,  Caitlin (16) and Clarissa (13). We are a musical family who just recently relocated back to the Wichita area. We love to be involved with music activities, travel, and spending quality time with one.
