Kristi Gunther has been teaching young actors to love theater for over 13 years. She has taught and directed students all over the St. Louis and New York metropolitan area, and is excited to begin her first year teaching at DaySpring! Locally, she has taught at Stages, COCA, Rosati-Kain, St Simon Middle, and more. Besides directing students, Kristi is a video producer, actress, on camera host, and voice over artist. She holds a BFA in directing from NYU. Her recent favorite productions include "Singin' In the Rain," "Batmania!" and "Beauty and the Beast." Currently you can find her at Kirkwood High School, directing the 2nd installment of "SW1X." When she isn't directing, Kristi loves to camp, garden, dance, sew, and just hang out with her 4 sweet kiddos. She strives to grow and inspire every student she teaches, and appreciates each parent who entrusts his or her child to her classroom.
