Meet Kristi Mann, lead humanities instructor

Kristi Mann

Kristi Mann has been named lead humanities instructor at Purdue Polytechnic High School.

“One of my other core beliefs in developing a successful school is an atmosphere of collaboration and teamwork,” Mann said. “Being able to help develop the curriculum and school structure with a collaborative and innovative team is an amazing opportunity for me. I am really excited to connect our students with the community, state agencies, and industries to make the curriculum and daily experience for them engaging and memorable.”

Mann worked for seven years at Goodwill Education Initiatives teaching students and creating and implementing curriculum and professional development for teachers. She also spent two years as a career and technical education (CTE) business teacher at Shelbyville High School.

Prior to joining Purdue Polytechnic High School, Mann served as director of education and workforce programs for Conexus Indiana, leading school improvement efforts for an advanced manufacturing and logistics curriculum implemented in high schools statewide. Mann also worked to improve communication between economic development groups and industry partners.

Mann received her undergraduate degree from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business and her Master of Science in Education from IUPUI with a focus on special education.

I am really excited to connect our students with the community, state agencies, and industries to make the curriculum and daily experience for them engaging and memorable.
