Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Kristen Larson and I am a Professor of Biology at Kankakee Community College since 2010. I teach Human Biology, Environmental Biology and many other Biology courses.

I earned a Masters of Biology in 2007 and Bachelors of Biology in 2002 both at Purdue University Calumet. I am passionate about helping people of all ages learn about the living world around them. As a Faculty member at a Community College, I feel it is my obligation to be involved in my local community. I volunteer with various organizations in the area teaching or involving various topics related to Biology.

I currently live in Manteno and with my three small children. When I am not teaching, volunteering or caring for my children, I enjoy a few hobbies​. These hobbies include gardening, hiking and taking my children to local zoos and museums.
