Best Skating Instructors 

Karin Faletic and Kristine Fondran

Euclid natives and sisters Karin (pictured, left) and Kristine (right) have been skating since they were kids and have about 30 years of teaching experience between them. Kristine is director of the International Inline Skating Association's Inline Certification Program, a job that requires national and international travel, and she and Karin operate Northcoast Inline Skating School. Karin, who's studying special education at Cleveland State, also helps run the Special Olympics ice-skating program at Cleveland Heights Community Center. And both somehow still find time to coach kids and adults several days each week. "You know you really like your job," says Kris, "when you never look at the clock."
