Mrs. Kristina Bryk


I have been working as the school social worker in District 34 as a full-time school social worker at Hillcrest at the start of the 2017. During the 2017-18 and 2018-19 school years I worked with the Early Childhood and Preschool classes as well as general education kindergarten and 1st grade classrooms and Structured Learning Program and Learning Opportunity Programs for kindergarten to 1st grade. I am excited to be working at Hillcrest again this year as we transition to our K-5 structure. We are very fortunate to have 2 social workers at our building and while we both work with all students, I will be primarily working with K-2nd students and Mrs. Leitza will be working with 3rd-5th graders. 

So here’s a little more about me when I’m not at school. I live in Antioch with my husband, 2 sons, and our dog Nala (and fish, a chinchilla, and cockatiel.) My sons both attended D34 schools and are now in high school and college. My younger son is a freshman at ACHS and my oldest is a freshman at IIT in Chicago studying Computer Science and Cybersecurity Engineering. In my freetime, I like spending time with my family and friends, working out, going for walks, being outside, listening to music, reading, watching movies, playing games, and I love to plan and take trips! We are also science and tech lovers in my family!
