Mrs. Kristi Fortenberry
Hello Spradley Families!
My name is Kristi Fortenberry. I am beginning my 21st 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, so it is only fitting that I am back to being an Eagle! I taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade in Plano and Frisco ISD, and am so grateful to be teaching 1st grade as part of the Prosper ISD family!
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 senior in high school this year- bear with me and my mommy emotions) and Carson (8th grade). I also have 3 fur babies, our dogs- Max, Lucy, and Dolce. My amazing husband Neil and I have been married 22 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 this year.
