Mrs. Kristi Fortenberry

Hello Spradley Families!

My name is Kristi Fortenberry. I am beginning my 23rd year in public and private education and I am more excited than ever to be joining your child's educational journey! I knew at the age of 6 that I wanted to be a preacher, a teacher, or an opera singer and I think I get to be all 3 doing what I do! I get to be a guardian of dreams, a motivator, a coach, a listener, a cheerleader, an encourager, and a learner along with teaching your precious child. I am a proud UNT Fighting Mean Green Eagle! I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade and have loved every second. I am so grateful to be teaching your child this year!  

Along with being a teacher, I have the other most important role in the world... a mom. I have 2 sons- Cole (who will be a sophmore at UNT- GO EAGLES) and Carson (who will be a sophmore in High School). I also have 2 fur babies, our dogs- Lucy, and Dolce- I call them my dogters. My amazing husband Neil and I have been married 24 years. We love to travel, watch baseball- GO RANGERS, and going on family hikes. Some of my favorite things are going and watching musicals, having a spa day, and just spending time outdoors with my favorite boys in the world. 

I look forward to an amazing year with you and your kiddo.
