Epsom Central School Staff And Faculty
Ms. Krystle Gould, Special Education Case Manager, 6th and 7th
Just before Krystle graduated from College, she wrote a paper
describing her “Philosophy of Teaching” which stated she would
always have respect for the children she taught. Although some were
skeptical of her philosophy, she has always followed that guideline.
Krystle received her BA in Elementary Education and Special
Education from SNHU, after which she worked as a paraprofessional in
Manchester for six years and one year as a teacher. She has spent
the last three years at ECS.
Krystle’s routine includes going into classrooms as needed to assist
students and providing “pull-out resources,” wherein a child is
taken aside for one-on-one instruction in certain areas of weakness.
One major source of pleasure for Krystle while working at ECS is the
amount of staff support and variety of resources available for
dealing with children having special needs. She supports the
Homework Club, which has what Krystle calls a “good group of kids,”
which in turn makes the job more fun. Krystle would ask that parents
establish a high priority for being involved in their kids’
education, since, as research has shown, the more involved parents
are, the more success the children will have.
Krystle Gould and Paula Stroberg have, for several years, been the
“Sunshine People,” providing gifts for fellow staff in need due to a
death in the family, marriage, childbirth, illness, or other issues.
Krystle lives in Hooksett with her twin daughters, Brie and
Nathalie, and their two Guinea pigs, Zoë and Ming Ming.
