Mrs. Kristen Grady Kirkland


This will be my Eighth year at Folsom Elementary in student services and my fourth year as Department Chair. This year I will be the third-grade resource math and ELAR teacher. I have been working on my masters in special education and will be finishing up this fall.  When I'm not at school, I'm spending time with my family.. my husband and our two children. Our daughter Maggie is 21 and is a vet tech in Prosper, Our son Rhys is a freshman at Collin College and works at Market Street. We have been enjoying the country life now for a year, we have over 3 acres and love it!!! If you stop in my room, you will see lots of fun "farm" pictures!!

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