Mrs. Kristen Grady Kirkland


This will be my seventh year at Folsom Elementary in student services and my third year as Department Chair. This year I'm excited to be able to work with a variety of grade levels in the resource classroom. I love having the opportunity to work with Children in different grade levels, its one of the things I love the most about my job! When I'm not at school, I'm spending time with my family.. my husband and our two children. Our daughter Maggie is 20 and is a vet tech in McKinney, Our son Rhys is a senior at PHS and works at Market Street. We moved out to the country this summer, we have over 3 acres and love it!! Our home needs a lot of work, and we love the opportunity to do those types of projects! If you stop in my room, you will see lots of fun "farm" pictures!! We also now have four dogs, we inherited one with the farm! I always have a funny farm dog story!

I am passionate about helping children to see all the potential they have.
