Dr. Kirsten J. Grant, PHD
Kirsten Grant is a Torah observant follower of Yahusha HaMaschiach, wife, mother of two sons and a daughter, sister, friend, auntie, and educator. Although her goals as a youngster were to become an obstetrician/gynecologist, the Most High had other plans and guided her steps to become an educator.
She was a joint-program pre-med major at Fisk University and was accepted into the 1998 fall medical school class at Meharry College, yet, declined to enter medical school that year and finished her Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology. Her career as an educator began when her first son was six months old in 2001 as a substitute teacher in the Mt. Vernon, NY City School District. During that time, she covered elementary and middle school classes.
Her drive to continue her education led her to attend graduate school with her young son in tow and the assistance of son’s dad and now husband of 16 years. She and earned a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Biochemistry from Florida State University in 2007 all while building her family and having her daughter (in 2003) and youngest son (in 2005). As Yah would have it, her graduate education was funded by a science education fellowship, and she became a GK-12 fellow that worked with elementary and middle school teachers to develop hands-on, inquiry-based science curriculum in addition to teaching undergraduate chemistry, biochemistry, and organic laboratory classes. Instead of following the traditional route as a laboratory bench scientist after graduate school, she became a high school biology teacher from 2008-2010 in Atlanta Georgia.
She moved back to New York with her family in 2010 where she was a family worker in a day care center for over a year. During that time, she assisted with enrolling children in the center and floated around all the classrooms to assist with the daily activities of the infants to preschoolers. In 2012 she began her career as an Adjunct Professor teaching numerous college courses including English comprehension, remedial reading and writing, speech, human biology, general chemistry and laboratory classes in biology and chemistry.
She has been a Clinical Professor in the Chemistry department at Hunter College since 2015, teaching chemistry to mostly pre-nursing major. Her primary focus has been to provide her students with the life and study skills they need to succeed as undergraduates and beyond. Again, Yah, in his masterful plan, brought her together with a wonderful team of educators in 2021 with the Great Awakening International that have a common goal in mind to educate our children in the ancient paths of our Hebrew ancestors.

Her passion is to use her spiritual gifts to do her part in helping to bring up the children of Yahsharel/Israel in the way in which they should go, so that when they grow older, they will not depart from it.

Hello, I am teacher Tina, and I am currently in my last year of school to receive my BS in Elementary Education with a concentration in Special ED. I am a wife and mother of 5 children ages 28,26,25,22,19.
I have plenty of experience in teaching and mentoring with such a large family. I'm also a mother to a daughter who has special needs (Autism spectrum), so I can relate to many parents who sometimes become frustrated with our educational system, due to not truly understanding our children's unique needs.
I have a passion for teaching and helping our children so that they can express their full potential and creativity, as they journey through life. It is my goal for your child to walk away with a more confident and positive outlook regarding reading, learning English, or about their Hebraic culture. I hope to foster relationships that will outlive my classroom setting.
I also work with Marietta Bel Programs, Preply, and Cambly helping adults and children to learn English.

My name is Mrs. Christalyn Gatlin-Walton; however, I simply prefer “Mrs. Chris”. My professional teaching journey began right after graduating high school. I was hired to teach in the world of both performing arts and academic studies. I have been passionate about teaching, both, ever since.
Some fun facts about me are that I enjoy good food, crafting, dancing, dark chocolate and the colors teal, turquoise and rose gold.
I believe learning should be fun and rewarding, not mundane and exhausting.
